  • It's too late baby, there's no turning around
    I've got my hands in my pocket and my head in a cloud
    This is how I do
    When I think about you
    I never thought that you could break me apart
    I keep a sinister smile and a hold of my heart
    You want to get inside
    Then you need to get in line
    But not this time

    Cause you caught me off guard
    Now I'm running and screaming

    I feel like a hero and you are my heroine

    I won't try to philosophize
    I'll just take a deep breath and I'll look in your eyes
    This is how I feel
    And its so surreal
    I've got a closet filled up to the brim
    With the ghosts of my past and the skeletons
    And I don't know why
    You'd even try
    But I won't lie

    You caught me off guard
    Now I'm running and screaming

    I feel like a hero and you are my heroine
    Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?

    And I feel a weakness coming on
    Never felt so good to be so wrong
    Had my heart all locked down
    And then you turned me around
    I'm feeling like a new born child
    Every time I get a chance to see you smile
    It's not complicated
    I was so jaded

    And you caught me off guard
    Now I'm running and screaming

    I feel like a hero and you are my heroine
    Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?

    (I feel like a hero and you are my heroine)
    And I feel a weakness coming on
    Never felt so good to be so wrong
    Had my heart on lock down
    And then you turned me around
    (Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?)
    I'm feeling like a new born child
    Every time I get a chance to see you smile
    It's not complicated
    I was so jaded

    (I feel like a hero and you are my heroine)
    And I feel a weakness coming on
    Never felt so good to be so wrong
    Had my heart on lock down
    And then you turned me around
    (Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?)
    I'm feeling like a new born child
    Every time I get a chance to see you smile
    It's not complicated
    I was so jaded Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON

  • Shakershake from Hell, MiI like to think that this song is about drugs. It's sadder that way.
