Lyrics

Self Defence

I'm sorry I 'll have to pass
Forgo your sweet proposal
For all the love your ignorance could bring
You must have been in some kind of trance
If you thought the earth had moved for me
To be honest girl I never felt a thing

And all I ever learnt from love
I'll admit it to my shame
A list of broken causalties all tarnished by my name

In my self defence
It never made no kind of sense
To always hurt the ones you love
But in my self defence
I'll strike out with intent
If you get close enough

If you could believe the lies
The inevitable deception
'Cos there's no way that I can play for keeps
I see it there in your eyes
The hurt and discontentment
The price of innocence lost so young is steep

And so you say you've got so much love it's like a resovoir of gold
But yet you still got no idea for how little mine was sold

chorus

Do I need to love you, do I need to hold you
Do I need to pluck the heart from the stone
Of a teenage blood assassin, stirring up the passion
Of a legacy that died along rime ago
Left to my devices, I don't like my chances
Temptation and lust cutting close to the bone
I'll never leave my home without a gun to shoot you down
And my empty arms fo hold you to save you from bleeding alone
