In love I watched you change into a man
Mirrored in my skin you looked your best
And I would rather you stay innocent
Than you discovering who I really am

I would have worn a warning if I knew what was wrong
But you discovered layers that I knew nothing of
Convinced that you could save me, took years to see the truth
That it had be imprinted, set in rock stubborn youth

There's a certain kind of madness
That just cannot be explained
Under sympathetic sadness
Beastly left untamed
There's a certain kind of pleasure
In seeing lovers squirm like snakes
That's how easily I measure
Just how much me you can take

I really tried to tell you: run away whilst free
While I try to uncover what's really haunting me

Head rush while bobbing under; mouth open, bended knees
It's true what people tell you about the apple and the tree
Did you consider leaving when you saw her in me?
Took it as charm intriguing, until I let you see

That there's a certain kind of lover
Makes you question who you are
Makes you hand over your powers
Leave a bulging heart shaped scar
There are certain kind of memories
That I don't know where to place
Cannot shake, cannot pretend that
There are things I can erase

I do not understand you, though grateful for your love
The demon is an old friend you cannot free me of

There's a certain kind of lover
Makes you question who you are
Makes you hand over your powers
Leave a bulging heart shaped scar
There are certain kind of memories
That I don't know where to place
Cannot shake, cannot pretend that
These are things I can erase

I do not understand you, though grateful for your love
The demon is an old friend you cannot free me of
