"Blackmail" as written by and William Topley....
If a lover wants to stay you know she can't be made to run
You can doctor people's claims with secret ink and carbon guns
There ain't nowhere I can hide where I won't be afraid of you
As unlikely as it sounds you know I'm still in love with you

Well I'm left rubbing twigs in search of a flame for fire
Whilst you like Icarus soar higher

This time I ain't coming back child
You took me once that's enough blackmail now
Sweet love should never turn sour like this
Line me up in your sights and you shoot to kiss

If I could only hear your voice I could put m y jealous heart to rest
But you rule over an isle where the crackling wire don't stretch
With my tail between my legs I bring oddities from far afield
I've sailed the doldrums, suffered lice and sunburn and sargasso weeds

Well I'm left rubbing twigs in search of a flame for fire
Whilst you like Icarus soar higher
The boiling sun will melt the wax that holds your wings
And lover's sheets can't break your fall

It's gonna be alright child

It was a risk, we knew it all along
One mistake you'd play, I'd sing along
It's a mistake, we knew it all along
I can play but you can't sing along
