You've got your wish tonight
Crosses to crucify
Big eyes, hot crimes
Undressed, the best of times

Commit your sister, fisted foes
Pull the trigger, let them know
Killed myself, I killed us both
I'm happy to be there

I need it... x4
I need... x2
I need it...
Until I want it...
I want it... x3
I want... x2
I want it...
Until I need it...
I need it... x3

Welcome to waste your life
My vulgar valentine
Cute crime, blonde highs
You're fucked, the best of times

Then lift your heels and drown the pose
Bend you over just to know
Gorgeous whisper, pretty ghost
I'm happy to be there

I need it... x4
I need... x2
I need it...
Until I want it...
I want it... x3
I want... x2
I want it...
Until I need it...
I need it... x3

It's time to live with what you've done x2
Saved by strangers, killed by ghosts (ghosts x2)

I need it... x3

I hold you close to let you go
You pull the trigger, let them know
Saved by strangers, killed by ghosts
And I am happy to be there.

I need it... x4
I need... x2
I need it...
Until I want it...
I want it... x3
I want... x2
I want it...
Until I need it...
I need it... x2
I need I said I need it...
I need it... x2
I need I said need it...
I need it... x3

I need it... x5

    Based on the music video I think its about children who are under the care of nuns and priests. They think they are safe but their lives are being destroyed. The nuns are strangers who are supposedly saving them by correcting their sinful ways as they have no family to teach them, but their history always haunts them.

    Hope this helps,
    Luv, Sarah xoxo
