  • I was angry and brash as a bull
    You were devastatingly beautiful

    I was crude
    I was lewd
    I was rude
    I was not in the mood

    It's a peculiar stance
    It's me reaching for the olive branch

    Yes I would want things
    They have scared me

    I say yes I will do all the things that you ask of me
    I say yes I will, come on darling, have no fear

    And though the way is dark
    And hands will grab our arms

    I'll remember this
    And only this

    Yes I will

    Tearjerker, shadow-lurker, wonder-worker, reach a bit further
    Tearjerker, shadow-lurker, wonder-worker, reach a bit further
    Will you by any chance
    Remember the olive branch?

    Say yes I will do all the things that you'll ask of my
    Yes I will come on darling have no fear

    And though the way is dark
    And hands will grab our arms

    Ill remember this
    And only this

    Oh yes, yes I will

    Tearjerker, shadow-lurker, wonder-worker, reach a bit further
    Tearjerker, shadow-lurker, wonder-worker, reach a bit further
    Will you by any chance?
    Yes I'll Publisher: DOMINO PUBLISHING COMPANY
