  • Lyrics
  • Well tonight out on the streets I'm gonna follow you
    And tell you all about a scene that you would kill for
    You're gonna love what's running right in front of you
    But you won't see it by the light of the sun
    Come out tigerlily, you're caressing me
    I'll take you up, I'll turn you on, I'll take your apathy
    I wouldn't lie to you blossom, won't you let it go
    I'm gonna give you what you want and don't you know (That you)

    I know you better than this
    I could be here when you call
    I'll make you top of the list
    And in the crash of the dark
    I'll be your light in the mist
    I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
    Psychobabble all upon your lips

    They can sell it all they want but you cannot agree
    I don't like the taste of damn morality
    You'll find your bread and you butter where you fake it
    And put your face in the gutter of a snake pit
    But out communication is telepathy
    What you give is what you get out of us naturally
    And we can wait 'til the shadow rolls along
    And turn the page of the story that has long since found a home

    I know you better than this
    I could be here when you call
    I'll make you top of the list
    And in the crash of the dark
    I'll be your light in the mist
    I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
    Psychobabble all upon your lips

    Have you ever felt like you're being followed?
    Or watched the ones that held your stare?
    Turned around to see who's behind you to find there's no one there
    Pra-lurking in the dark is someone who breathes you night and day
    There's a friend who wants so much more
    But if they can't have you, they'll never let you walk away

    And in the crash of the dark
    I'll be your light in the mist
    I can see you burning with desire for a kiss

    And in the crash of the dark
    I'll be your light in the mist
    I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
    Psychobabble all upon your lipsWriter/s: ELLY JACKSON, BEN LANGMAID, DARREN BERRY
