I've heard if you stand too close to the fire, you're bound to get burned.
But just to be next to you baby, I'll risk getting hurt.
You dive in headfirst, without thinking of the consequences.
And I've had enough of sitting on the sidelines tentatively.

I wanna be reckless, I wanna be a fright,
I wanna howl at the moon with you tonight.
I wanna dance in a graveyard with wilted flowers in my hair.
You're dark as the depths of the ocean down below.
But I kind of like it so welcome to the dark side of my mind.

It's better to be safe than sorry, I hear people say.
But I have to disagree; nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I shouldn't gamble on a wild child fond of disappearing,
But the thought of life upon the edge is all consuming.

I wanna be reckless I wanna be a fright,
I wanna howl at the moon with you tonight.
I wanna dance in a graveyard with wilted flowers in my hair.
You're an inferno, a twisted mystery of a soul,
But I kind of like it so welcome to the dark side of my mind.

Whoa, whoa

You befriend the monsters underneath your bed,
And nightmares are your home.
Your dark light draws me ever closer,
It ignites fire, I want to grow.
Run in the opposite direction,
But your indiscretion,
It's magnetic, I can't stand it, I keep coming back.
Curiousity, it got the best of me,
It opened up Pandora's box and I'm intoxicated.

Whoa

I wanna be reckless I wanna be a fright,
I wanna howl at the moon with you tonight.
I wanna dance in a graveyard with wilted flowers in my hair.
You're dark as the depths of the ocean down below,
But I kinda like it so welcome to the dark side...

Welcome to the dark side...
Welcome to the dark side of my mind
