lyrics

There’s a fine line that separates
What we want and what we get
So I will state this plainly
I’m not finished with you yet

You claim your aim is to abstain
From distraction
From diversion
Yet you will readily admit you are
Subject to coercion

Love, you knew this thing was bigger
Than any qualm inside your head
Why hold it down?
Why hold your ground?
When you could hold me instead

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
Cause I’ve got something
That I think you’d like to see

We knew we took a gamble
The day we offered our consent
Old friends become new lovers
In one bold instant

All our silences were spoken
I heard the code crack from within
The borders
They’re all broken
I can’t tell
Where I end and you begin

I guess some risks just must be taken
When certain hungers must be fed
Why have it out?
Why have our doubts?
When we could have us instead

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
Cause I’ve got something
That I think you’d like to…

See me here as I am
Laid out in light before you
Take as much as you can
If you really want out
You’d better learn to live without
The realest real you’ve ever felt

I know it’d take a sharp edge
To make you think outside your lines
To make you cease from building boundaries
To let your love bleed into mine

What’s crime to you,
I call creation
You say, “There’re rules…”
I’m unconvinced
This is you and this is me
And we are not degrees
Of guilt or innocence

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
Cause I’ve got something
That I think you’d like to see

Fall into me kindly
Not to would be piracy
And you’d be no better
Than a thief in stormy weather
Slipping away before daylight
Sailing my heart into the night

You can call this untimely
I can call you by your name
You’ve been unfettered
But you know better
Than to suggest that I try
The same

There’s a fine line that separates
What we want and what we get
