My love is cruel as the night
She steals the sun and shuts out the light.
All of my colors turn to blue
Win or lose.
Scarlet eyes and a see through heart
I saw it coming right from the start.
She picked me up but had me down on my knees
Just a begging her please.
Take me slow dancing
I don't why a man
Will search for himself in his woman's eye.
No I don't know why a man
Sees the truth but needs the lie.
My love is restless as the wind.
She moves like a shadow across my skin.
She left with my conscience
And I don't want it back.
It just gets in the way.
