Lyrics

I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS

v1
You stood before me naked
You seduced me with your lies
I didn't know how much you'd steal from me
When I let you dance inside my mind
All your movements were poetic
But your motives, so unkind

C1
You know I did not ask for this
I never signed my name
This place where you have taken me
Left me blinded by your flame
You took most everything I had
What was left you overcame

v2
You told me I was special
The night you lead me to your cell
I was filled with expectation
Intoxicated by your spell
You said it was the penthouse
I missed the sign for Hotel Hell

C2
You know I did not ask for this
I never signed my name
This place where you have taken me
Left me blinded by your flame
You took most everything I had
What was left you overcame

v3
Through the candlelight I saw you
Building castles in the dirt
I didn't mind the games you played
But, I should have been on high alert
Now you're trying to destroy me
I may bleed but I won't hurt

C3
You know I did not ask for this
I never signed my name
This place where you have taken me
Left me blinded by your flame
No matter how you spin it
I am not the one to blame

v4
Now take your clothes and go back
To the time you were before
You no longer can control me
I don't need you anymore
You diseased me with your love
But my faith became the cure

C4
You know I did not ask for this
I never signed my name
But somewhere deep within me
My resolve remained the same
My faith was stronger the your darkness
And I finally overcame

Yes somewhere deep within me
My resolve remained the same
My faith was stronger the your darkness
And I finally overcame

My faith was stronger the your darkness
And I finally overcame
