Desire

Album: Anna Calvi (2011)
  • I wanna go to the sun
    Hold my life like I've never done
    But it's just the devil in me
    The devil that's calling as I come undone

    The sky is getting dark tonight
    Darker than the fear that's gonna pull us apart
    The beating is the sound of love
    The sound of love is beating like a fevered heart

    And it's the fire, the fire, the fire
    It's heavenly, heavenly
    Desire, desire
    Desire, desire

    I wanna lay in the dust
    The dust is gonna fall here when I lie
    God knows it's just the devil in me
    The devil that's taking my hand to the fire

    I never wanna leave you now
    Leave you like the sun is gonna disappear
    But it's just believing now
    Believing in my heart is what I've come to fear

    And it's the fire, the fire, the fire
    It's heavenly, heavenly
    Desire, desire
    Desire, desire
    I've got desire, desire
    I've got desire, desire

    And only the lonely
    Only the lonely fall
    Only the lonely
    Only the lonely fall
    Fall

    Oh, and I go to the fire
    But God knows it's the sound of, it's the sound of love
    It's the beat of my heart that you
    Finally beating, it's coming, coming, coming for you

    And it's just the devil in me
    It's just a door to the devil gathered in disguise
    Taking me by the hand
    And leading me, leading me off to the fire

    And it's the fire, the fire, the fire
    It's heavenly, heavenly
    Desire, desire
    Desire, desire

    You don't have to be lost
    (Desire, desire)
    You don't have to be lost
    (Desire, desire)
    You don't have to be lost
