  • We can fight our desires
    But when we start making fires
    We get ever so hot
    Whether we like it or not
    They say we can love who we trust
    But what is love without lust?
    Two hearts with accurate devotions
    What are feelings without emotions?

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I hang my hopes out on the line
    Will they be ready for you in time
    If you leave them out too long
    They'll be withered by the sun
    Full stops and exclamation marks
    My words stumble before I start
    How far can you send emotions?
    Can this bridge cross the ocean?

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I'm going in for the kill
    I'm doing it for a thrill
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    And not let go of my hand

    I'm going in
    I'm doing it
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
    I'm doing it
    Oh I'm hoping you'll understand Writer/s: Benedict Langmaid, Eleanor Jackson
