The night before last
You became someone else
You confessed your sin
And my head swelled
I lost my voice
There’s nothing to kiss and tell
You had me hold my breath
You made me yell in my cell
You came to get your fill
And I emptied myself
You can't ask me to take it back
You can’t un-ring a bell
You gave me a hot coal to hold
You made me wander with it in the cold
You pick me up, then you put me down
You are my saving grace; now my hands are bound
You made me feel like nothing I said was true
You made me believe you were made for me
Why won’t you believe I was made for you?
The morning after
Your song remains the same
I only wanna love you
In love there is no blame
You’ll be the death of me
I’ll fly towards your flame
Now you’re distant when I’m near
Now I’m guilty of stealin
You just say “have no fear”
But now I got this terrible feelin…
Why won’t you speak? Why can’ I breathe?
Where do I begin? How’s this gonna end?
Why’d I have to say hello?
How was I supposed to know?
How’s this song supposed to go?
