lyrics

You, you crept inside my mind
And told me you’re searching for something to help you define my love...
...but you can never know.
What you can’t see is how much I long to be free of these chains.
You’ve wrapped me so tightly restricting the feeling of pain
that I see on your face.

Cos not all the bruises I left on you make you happy.
And not all the cuts I inflicted reach your heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in you
When all’s said and done it’s just you and I alone.

With you inside my mind
Searching for something that I won’t let you find, my love, because I’m afraid.
Of what you might see and how much you’ll long to be free of my chains.
Each link a lie as I’ve tried to hide my pain, my love, hide it from you.

Cos not all the bruises you left on me make me happy.
And not all the cuts I inflicted reach your heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in you
When all’s said and done it’s just you and I alone.

With you trapped in my mind
Each layer pulled back as we’re under attack.
We can’t find our way out, of this place
Me and you... what can we do
But go on and on and find our way home.

Cos not all the bruises I left on you make you happy.
And not all the cuts you inflicted reached my heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in me
When all’s said and done it’s just me alone...
With you in my mind…
In my mind…
In my mind.
