  • I'm the obsessor
    Holding your hand
    It seems you have forgotten
    About your man
    Alone in the darkness
    My bed's a different land
    Your touch intensifies
    And I'm in the quicksand
    I'm in the quicksand
    I'm in the quicksand

    You're the up-settor
    Stroking my hand
    What's my position?
    I don't understand
    Am I your position?
    Am I enigma?
    Oh, when you turn to me
    I'm in the quicksand
    I'm in the quicksand
    I'm in the quicksand

    You, you moved into to my mind again, oh
    You, you're walking around again and free, oh
    Oh, I can't let you stay
    But I'm walking on broken ground again
    Oh, when will I learn?
    All you do is push me back in the dirt

    Ah, ah
    I'm in the quicksand
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'm in the quicksand
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'm in the quicksand
    Oh-oh-oh-oh
    I'm in the quicksand Writer/s: BENEDICT LANGMAID, ELEANOR JACKSON
