Desire

You live for love, I long for it
You give for love, I take from it
This friend of mine, desire
This lover's crime, desire
Emotion driving all the time
A burning need for things not mine

Desire
Desire
Desire

You need your love, I walk from it
You fight for love, I run from it
My enemy, desire
Caressing me, desire
The torch I carried burnt my hand
I can't control what I can't stand

Desire
Desire
Desire

You live for love, I lie for it
You give for love, I shy from it

And the pain, and the lust
And the want, and the hurt
And the lies, and the fear
And the urge, and the feel
And the touch, and it's all

A friend I call desire

You live for love, I lie for it
You give for love, I shy from it

And the pain, and the lies
And the touch, and it's all

A friend I call desire
