lyrics

I’m twisting and writhing in the arms of this night
My soul is fevered, my eyes are on fire
Dear, you’re the curse on my house, on my home
You are the ghost that rattles my bones

This ache is so lovely I can taste it on my tongue
Dear, you’re the fever that tears me apart
Come pull me close at the height of agony
You are hungry, you are hungry and you belong to me

You can keep a wavin’ your gun at me
But Honey, I was born with a bullet in my teeth
So don’t you waste your precious time
Honey, I was born with the devil in my eyes...
