Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you but I better not touch
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace on sweat

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins
I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin
I want to kiss you but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

Run deep inside my veins
Its burning deep inside my veins
One look could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you but I better not touch
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

Poison

I want to love you but I better not touch
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

Poison

    General CommentI think this song means:

    "I want to love you but I better not touch
    I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison"

    Well I think she likes a guy or vice versa and she Loves (Lust) After him. She wants tro tell him she loves him but she cant because she's afraid that he will hurt her. She wants to hold him but shes afriad that he will push her away. She wants to kiss him but she just thinks she wants TOO much. She wants to taste him but if she does he might ruin her life or something, But even though all that is going through her mind, She still loves (lust after) him.

    " Your cruel device
    Your blood, like ice
    One look could kill
    My pain, your thril"

    ok shes decribing him and how he is. Like "One look could kill" Well he probably has these cool ass eyes but they glare alot. Like EVIL glares and whatnot. Or he may have alot of fangirls and when he looks at girls they faint or feel like they can die and stuff. And "My Pain, Your Thrill" He's probably a sadist, enjoying others pain.

    "You're poison running through my veins
    You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains"

    Ok, saying he's already been under her skin or whatever happened. And he's infecting her. Cause he's slowly killing her some how. And even though he's killing her, and she can take the poison out she doesn't want to, because she probably really loves him, and she'll let him do whatever to her...

    Yea... I kinda lost myself after a while...

    General CommentI absolutely DON´T agree. To be honest I think it´s about drugs!
    ´Your mouth, so hot
    Your web, I'm caught
    Your skin, so wet
    Black lace on sweat ´

    This COULD be about a person, yes, youre right with that, but I think to be honest it´s a cold turkey. because it gives the same sympthones. Your web, I´m caught.. you just really got lost in the drugs

    You're poison running through my veins
    You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains

    Run deep inside my veins
    Its burning deep inside my veins
    One look could kill
    My pain, your thrill

    about breaking the chains, it´s just the habit, the addiction, if you quit, it´s gonna hurt SO much. the poison is running in the veins, logic. ´One look, could kill, my pain, your thrill´ if she looks at it, she´s gonna take it, and it can mean her death. it´s her pain why she´s taking it, so that´s the thrill for it..

    I want to love you but I better not touch
    I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison

    as she says so, love but better not. Being on drugs is like love but you try not to (touch it).. she wants to hold it, just to go on, but everything in her tells her it´s killing her.. and the last two sentence can be figurally. doesn´t really have lips, but the methaphor.

    when I first heard it I though it was about drugs, when I kept repeating it, I thought still. I think it´s weird to let this go over a boy.

    my suggestion is drugs

    General CommentI don't think it's about drugs, aliki...how can you kiss and hold drugs and stuff? I think it's about a girl dreadfully in love with a troubled boy. She knows she shouldn't get involved with him, it'll "poison", or ruin her life. But she still desires him.
