Go ahead touch me like that
The way you pull my hair back
Go ahead breathe me in
Bite me til I bleed
This love is like barbed wire running through my veins
Nicotine Love
Go ahead hurt me like that
I've been hurt before
I won't be fixed again
I'm not afraid to sweat
Cause I like the pain and it's familiar to me
And more gentle than most men will ever be
Nicotine Love
*But don't get me wrong
I don't want a friend
Just need you here to help me satsify this childish sin
This insatiable desire, this hunger so deep
You will melt on my tongue
And I will put you to sleep
And I will press you like petals
Til you're fragile and bent
And I'll rid you of...
Nicotine Love
It hurts just right
Not to know your name
But feel that body beneath me
Struggling as though it was somehow sane
As when I was with him
Gonna make you promise to me
Than I will crush your heart
Cause I can't
Because it happened to me
Nicotine Love
So come here baby
My honey, cutie-pie
Let my fingers swim like pale fish through your hair
So I can tell you that I love you
Your safe, never let me go
You wonder why it I'm here
With patience, soon it'll be all too clear
Nicotine Love
*But don't get me wrong...
So go ahead touch me like that
The end is drawing near
Go ahead hurt me that way
You don't even know enough to fear
You don't know how true it is when you say
My kisses are sweet as death
But soon you'll have no more options
It's all you have left
Love is like barbed wire
I'm electric and so alone
So come here stray cat
I'm gonna take you home
I'm gonna press you like petals
Til you're fragile and bent
And I'll...
Well I'll...
Nicotine Love

    General CommentThis is true classic Jewel and such a shame it was never on an album. To all the critics that say Jewel is mere sticky sweet pop pablum--listen to this.


    This song gets under the skin to the core of your soul. It does what any truly effective art does--it shakes up your reality and makes you feel/think something you've never felt or lived before. It changes your perspective on life. This song sears the soul with its deep brilliance. The music pierces the soul as well.

    She explained on the bootleg that I have that this song is about a former boyfriend she had who worried about her hitchhiking and so made her watch movies about serial killers to warn her about the dangers. One of these movies was about a woman who was raped and so sought out rapists to seduce and kill them.

    Its brilliant, dark and deep and SO far away from the candy pop she is accused of.
