My babe is the sunshine that keeps me warm
My love is the heartbeat that keeps me going
My darlin' is the rainfall that washes off my sins
My babe is the whip that cracks against my skin

‚Äč

My baby's the darkness that helps me to sleep
My darlin's the hypnotist that makes me weak
My baby's the poison that keeps me drunk
My darling is all the stars, my baby is the sun

My love is the full moon at which I howl
My darlin's the weight that's dragging me down
Deeper and deeper into the sea of love
My babe is the nightmare I've been dreamin' of

My baby's the darkness that helps me to sleep
My darlin's the hypnotist that makes me weak
My baby's the poison that keeps me drunk
My darling is all the stars, my baby is the sun

 

Every man that I meet wants money and fame
Not a soul says "give me love and a day"
Listen to the man who's got time in his eyes
He says "What'll you have when it comes your time?"

The love of a woman brings peace to your heart
All the money in the world won't buy you nothing at all
It won't pay for your sins, it won't buy back your soul
Yes a good woman's love, is better than gold

And every man that I meet wants money and fame
Oh no not me, I want love and a day
I said oh no not me, I want love and a day.
Oh no not me, I want love and a day.

Make up your mind, what do you want?
Do you want me here, or not?
Open your eyes. Look at my face.
Do you really think we've got what it takes?

The moon is calling out, says forever is but a myth
I want to stay but my flesh tears with each kiss.

Bruises of your love, burns of your desire
I can't get enough, nothing gets me higher
I love your taste, love how it hurts
Oh, tell me more I'm addicted to your words.

The moon is calling out, says forever is but a myth
I want to stay but my flesh tears with each kiss.
So I try to figure it out, when it rains it pours
But I'm in a drought, I need your love but you tear me down

Make up your mind, what do you want?
Do you want me here, or not?
Open your eyes. Look at my face.
Do you really think we've got what it takes?

The moon is calling out and I feel your love.
The waves are begging me to stay but your flesh makes me shudder.
So I try to figure it out, when it rains it pours.
But I'm in a drought, I need your love but you tear me down.
So I try to figure it out, when it rains it pours.
But I'm in a drought, I need your love but you push me down.
Moon is calling out, says forever is but a myth
The waves are begging me to stay but my flesh tears with each kiss.
So I try to figure it out, when it rains it pours. 
But I'm in a drought, I need your love but you push me down. 

I feel the rain fall upon my face
Soft as a lover's kiss on a dark day
And I know that time keeps going
You cannot stop a river from flowing

Cigarette smoke fills the room
Bloodshot eyes are blurred by the truth
Gypsy love through my veins
In the night you won't feel a thing

Memories and nightmares of that day
Winter air as the sky turns gray
I hear screams echo through the night
Oh they're burned in my mind

Cigarette smoke fills the room
Bloodshot eyes are blurred by the truth
Gypsy love, I feel it in my veins
In the night you won't feel a thing

I hide my heart behind aviator sunglasses
I thought I'd buried it all in the ashes
but I know that time keeps going
You cannot stop a river from flowing
