That sensation in my stomach defies my thoughts
Thought rational and logical they may be.
I know I should really behave myself
But something else is controlling me.

I feel nervous, jealous, reckless, over-zealous
But persecute myself and there's no change.
All the dreams I ever closed my eyes for, swarmed with pangs of doubt.
And still the urge to fall remains...

One day I'll lighten up, feel warm inside
Condemn that thing that haunts my mind.
That fear in me, my own jealousy
is the only poison dart in my side
With eyes closed, I may as well be blind

So right at the epicentre of this
There's a girl who's feeling torn
Between the lively aggression of the stormy sea
And the dry, baron desert in front of me

Drown in the ocean or perish from thirst
I'm bewildered by the apathy inside
Consciousness corroding like a lonely grain of sand
And no one seems to understand.

Can I find the bravery?
Dig out the courage inside me?
Deep dark secrets can't stay all-concealed forever
You - my pillar for too long now.
My infectious smile's now an infectious frown.
Deep dark secrets can't stay all-concealed
But it's hard to change when so much hangs on this.

With a wink of an eye, a nod of his head
That seductive smile lures me into his bed
Bed of thorns, bed of knives, I really don't care
At the click of his fingers he knows I'll be there...
