I've got another confession to make
So complicated let me try to explain
Don't want this feeling to go away
So it stays (It stays)
(It stays) (It stays)

Is it the way that you talk
That's causing me to freak
Is it the way that you laugh
That's making my heart beat
Is it the way that you kiss
It's gotta be the way that you taste
(You taste) (You taste) (You taste)

You're such a gorgeous nightmare
Old habits never seem to go away
You make me feel brand new, Yeah
We resurrect, It's like I've come back to life

I feel so alive, I feel so alive!

First impressions are hard to erase
It's in my mind and just won't go away
Maybe I'm playing my cards way too safe
I've gotta change (Change) (Change) (Change)

Is it the way that you feel against my body
Is it the way that you act, so damn naughty
Is it the way that you shake
When your hips move to the bass
(The bass) (The bass) (The bass)

You're such a gorgeous nightmare
Old habits never seem to go away
You make me feel brand new, Yeah
We resurrect, It's like I've come back to life

I feel so alive, I feel so alive...

[Solo]

(I feel so alive)

You're such a gorgeous nightmare
Old habits never seem to go away
You make me feel brand new, Yeah
We resurrect, It's like I've come back to life

You're such a gorgeous nightmare
Old habits, Don't go away!
You make me feel brand new, Yeah
We resurrect, It's like I've come back to life

I feel so alive, I feel so alive,
I feel so alive, I feel so alive

    I think what is meant by this song is, he has fallen in love with someone, he doesn't know all to well, or he does but he can't have her because of some reason. She's haunting his life and it feels like a nightmare of never ending hurt because he can't be with her. He's bordering on obsession with this girl and there's nothing he can do because she probably doesn't feel the same. But the nightmare is what keeps him alive, because he'll never give up on her. Kinda like a more tragic version of romeo and juliet.

    On a personal note, it reminds me of an ex, someone who i wish i'd never let go off. It's like not knowing what you have until it's gone.

    To me this sounds like a drug addiction. I know I've been in a constant battle with a certain opiate since the first time I tried it. It was love at first dose and I've tried many times to get away from it. But every time it pulls on me till I go back and then once I give it's like falling in love again.

    Its all about him being in love and not knowing how to explain it and when he is with her, he feels alive and haves a purpose. She is also a dirty girl too
