Young and full off running
Tell me where is that taking me
Just a great figure eight
Or a tiny infinity

Love is really nothing
But a dream that keeps waking me
For all of my trying
We still end up dying
How can it be?

Don't say a word
Just come over and lie here with me
Cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
There I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me

So young and full off running
All the way to the edge of desire
Steady my breathing
Silently screaming
I have to have you now

Wired and I'm tired
Think I'll sleep in my clothes on the floor
Baby this mattress will spin on it's axis
And find me on yours

Don't say a word
Just come over and lie here with me
Cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
There I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me

BRIDGE

Don't say a word
Just come over and lie here with me
Cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
There I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me
