We crossed the line
Who pushed who over
It doesn't matter to you
It matters to me

We're cut adrift but still floating
I'm only hanging on to watch you go down
My love

Oh, in love and war there are no rules
Oh, that said
You're so cruel

She wears my love like a see-through dress
Here lips say one thing
Her movements, something else
Oh love, like a screaming flower
Love, dying every hour

You don't know if it's fear or desire
Danger, the drug that takes you higher
Head of heaven, fingers in the mire

Oh, to stay with you I'd be a fool
Oh, sweetheart, sweetheart
You're so cruel
