"Tarantula" as written by and Rollo Armstrong Maxwell Fraser....
Down in the shadows of your deepest secrets
I sleep next to the precepts you hold most dear
Your heart is in my province jour upon hour
I shiver when you feel the cold,
Everything you say I hear
Like a bomb and its fuse,
We bring bright light
But I could be a devil to you
I could bite like a tarantula
Right through the skin
And leave my poison dripping (dream)
Deliciously Unsuspecting
Protecting you from all harm
Except perhaps from reasoning (these arms)
That hold you

    General Commenthave to agree with Daniele; the last line, i'm reconing IS "except perhaps from these arms that hold you..." x

    General Commentdespite the wrong lyrics, I really like this song.

    I feel the singer is saying that as much as he loves this person, he wishes he could protect them from harm, but the biggest harm is his own self.
