  • I desire I desire
    I pledge allegiance to the thought
    That your love is all that matters
    And your gestures have the power
    To bring the whole world to its knees

    Don't let me torment you
    Don't let me bring you down
    Don't ever let me hurt you
    Don't let me fail because

    I desire your attention
    I desire your perfect love
    I desire nothing more (than this)

    To give you happiness
    Could become a lifetime goal
    A smile I might bring you
    Is more important than world peace

    I pledge allegiance to the fact
    That you're wise to walk away
    For nothing is more dangerous
    Than desire when it's wrong Writer/s: GERALD CASALE, JOHN F. HINKLEY, MARK ALLEN MOTHERSBAUGH
