Please don't give me what I want
And protect me from the great to come
My dear, I know the hounds are near
I'm fickle as a pendulum
I trembled in the winter-pale wreck
To the depths of my wickedness
And breathless and lifeless, though I am
The heart of the lion inside the lamb

Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only

Don't give me what I want
And forsake my place to swim
My dear, they'll come for us by night
And I'm harboring my sin
Darling, you know I am afraid of leaving
Morning's light ?

And I wish I was good, if only, only I could

Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
Won't you come for me, across that line?
And hold my heart, if only, only
