Album: Intimacy (2008)
Charted: 39
  • And in the dark it comes for me
    Malevolent and without thought
    Uprooting trees, destroying cars
    Cold and relentless, with arms outstretched

    No boat nor brick
    Nor crucifix can hold it back
    I've been wicked
    I've been arrogant

    [Chorus]
    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss (Silent about it)
    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss
    And I cannot say that I was not warned or was misled
    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss

    Awaken from dreams of drunken car crashes
    You saddened my friends and claimed all my lovers
    I tried to stay still, so it will not see
    Its talons rake the side of my face
    When did you become such a slut?

    [Chorus]

    And I didn't think I'd catch fire when I held my hand to the flame
    And I didn't think it would catch up as fast as I could have run
    Fate came a knocking when I was looking the other way
    A new disease came in the post for me today

    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss
    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss
    And when it comes
    And when it comes
    And when it comes
    And when it comes it will feel like a kiss Writer/s: JERRY RAGOVOY, KELE OKEREKE, RUSSELL DEAN LISSACK, GORDON PETER MOAKES, MATTHEW CHEE HUNG TONG
