You ..

You make me want to die … take away my music..
and my love wants to pour, dripping from my veins
Love is life, life is in the blood, I want love no more

You suck away all devotion, with heretical pornography
Until it all becomes filthy flesh, with no cause for lust
Flesh defiled grows quickly boring. I want flesh no more

You make me want to rend my eyeballs from their sockets
because they have seen your beauty and your beauty is a lie
Ugly as sin? Are you not my sin, my beauty? I want beauty no more.

You are at my back when I turn away, before my eyes if I stay
Taunting me, driving me mad, with dangled promise of hope
Tearing my life down to suit your needs before tossing it away.

You make me want to die, I can no longer hear the words
Without deep keening pain of loss for this is not my world
You never sang Del Shannon songs and cried for me.

You ..
