lyrics

I'm writing secrets on my feet
The only part of me he never sees
But when they are finally revealed
He'll have nothing left to steal
You've yet to learn what you will miss
Because of his ever swindled kiss
But I cannot help but think of you
Every time affection turns crude

And every time he lays me down
I know I'll think of him when you're under the covers
And every time he touches my skin
He erodes the softness you long to discover
And every time I lick his neck
I absorb his poison and pass it on to us
And every time I feel his weight
You lose me because someone must

Over railroad tracks I wished for you
But now you are forbidden fruit
Because I could not wait to find
That I was out of borrowed time
And now I writhe in lust and pain
With nothing left to lose or gain
Our future beauty can no longer last
Because of all the stains of lovers past

And every time he lays me down
I know I'll think of him when you're under the covers
And every time he touches my skin
He erodes the softness you long to discover
And every time I lick his neck
I absorb his poison and pass it on to us
And every time I feel his weight
You lose me because someone must

And when every last first is gone
So will be pleasure and our chances
Trust will be lust, a four letter word
'Cause that's the way romance is
I'll try to find some hope again
But I'll never be able to lose control
For though I battle with demons each day
It's compromise that steals the soul
