lyrics

I love what’s new so much
I can’t tell what’s best
I’ll never have what I want
I want what I can’t get

I won’t control myself, I won’t hide
The blackness draws you in, my pupils are so wide
It scares you when I look into your eyes
But this is the kind of fear you like

You’ve never met a girl like me before
You’ll never meet one again
It’s cruel for me to leave you wanting more
But these affairs are meant to end

I love what’s new so much
I can’t tell what’s best
I’ll never have what I want
I want what I can’t get

Because you are strange
Because you are new
Because nothing not now
Can ever be true

We walk to your place from the center of the city
I love your accent but I can’t stand the rain
One-night-stands have become a part of me
You say you never do this kind of thing but -

If our bodies were always touching
Then of course we would be feeling nothing
At least this spark is something

My skin is wrapped
In red warning labels
But I’ve nothing to conceal
My inner truths are on the table
