I Don’t Want To Be A Sinner

Standard

I didn’t mean to make a mess of things,
I guess neither did you
But you and I are both sinners
And we just do as sinners do

We lust, we lie, we cheat, that’s life
We loved, we lost, now it’s time to say goodbye.

I don’t want to be a sinner
But Lord knows I ain’t a saint
Neither of us is the winner,
Because neither of us could think
I don’t want to be a sinner
But I guess that’s what I am
Neither of us is the winner
Because you and I are both damned.

I didn’t mean to ruin your life
I guess I am just a whore
Because instead of going to the light
I followed you into the dark

I didn’t mean to fall in love
I guess you might say the same
But neither of us could stay away
Now we’re both to blame

We lust, we lie, we cheat, that’s life
We loved, we lost, now it’s time to say goodbye.

I don’t want to be a sinner
But Lord knows I ain’t a saint
Neither of us is the winner,
Because neither of us could think
I don’t want to be a sinner
But I guess that’s what I am
Neither of us is the winner
Because you and I are both damned.

I didn’t mean to make a mess of things
I didn’t mean to start a war
I didn’t mean to ask for so much
But I was greedy, I wanted more

I don’t want to be a sinner
But Lord knows I ain’t a saint
Because when he tested my faith,
I threw it all a way
I don’t want to be a sinner
But I know that’s what I am
Because when I’m kissing you,
I know I am damned.

Bound

Many hearts are caught in this game we’ve played

But tonight, that will all change.

The second-hand ticks-ticks away

But the minutes take hours, the hours take days.

When I see you tonight, when we meet face to face

How will you be feeling, what will you say?

Will your eyes dance like a pair of flames, or will their light fade away?

Our hearts linger, together, in the shade

Intertwined by the sins we’ve made

And I know things cannot continue this way

But as night slowly follows day

I wonder which heart is bound to break.

 

Mouth To Mouth

Standard

The way you look at me

With those big brown eyes

Makes my stomach dance

Makes my head light.

When your skin brushes against mine

I know I’m in too deep

Because my lungs get tied

My tongue grows weak.

And when you pull me in close

I know there’s no escape

Because when we’re mouth to mouth

You steal my breath away

Damned

Standard

When I am with you

It’s like some sort of drug

Living off of a high I can’t get enough of

But when my mind clears

I wonder to myself, what the hell am I doing here?

But I don’t know how to end it

And it goes on and on

How do I get off this vicious cycle

You’ve got me on?

It’d be easier to runaway from you

But in your presence my limbs are jelly

If I could just hide away from you

But you’re always there watching

If I could say goodbye

If our lips did more than kissing

Then maybe I could make it all right

And not have to feel so guilty

But you know as well as I

That this will never end

Guess I’ll have to succumb to the truth

That you and I are damned.

Lust

Standard

Sucking in the last of your breath

I can feel it start in my chest;

The hunger, desire for you.

Pressing my lips into yours

The lust becomes an uproar;

The hunger, desire for you.

Trailing the contours of you skin

I’m quivering with the space between us, paper thin;

The hunger, desire for you.

Breathing your aroma makes me shiver

I can’t take this for a second longer;

The hunger, desire for you.

I Should Have Known

Standard

Paranoia sinking in

Memories left on my skin

Close my eyes to escape

But you found me

You always found me.

Snowflakes falling to the ground

Landing there without a sound

You took my hand in yours

And you led me astray

Led me astray.

I should have known when our eyes met

I should have known when our lips colided

I should have known when our skin touched

That you were trouble, trouble

And that you’d ruin me.

The taste of danger on your tongue

Things we did were so wrong.

The static generated through our skin

Electric, Electric.couple kissing

Tideless waters in my lungs

The rumors when I was young

You always had control of me

Hypnotic, hypnotic.

I should have known when our eyes met

I should have known when our lips colided

I should have known when our skin touched

That you were trouble, trouble

And that you’d ruin me.

I should have seen when you didn’t call

I should have realized when I lost it all

I should have known when you broke my heart

That you would vanished, vanished

And that you’d abandon me.

I hear your steps in the snow

I turn around but you are gone

Perhaps this print you left inside

Will melt away

Someday…
