She could turn on a broken light bulb

Her eyes were obsession wrapped in desire

Her lips could strip the chrome off of steel

and set the world on fire.


Trying to avoid it

Makes it burn in a shining light

So I'm running towards the meaning

And escaping with my life.



Whatever's gonna happen

Will occur out in the light

Freedom's is not just a word

It usually means a fight


Its too much to even consider

Its messing up my mind

A heart will surely be broken

And I fear it won't be mine


If it's freedom that we give up

On the wedding day

The promise made seems far too harsh

To stand the test of time


A promise is a promise

You can't play the field

Without changing what you value

I don't like the way that feels
