lyrics

My darling, your highness, my tyrant, my queen
I love that you’re never as sweet as you seem
For the scars on my back tell a tale of agony
But it’s par for the course with you

Your words cloud around me in saccharine squalls
There’s tears on the pillow and blood on the walls
And each little syllable’s a twist of the sword
My kingdom for a horse or two

So after the battles I dash for the door
Get cold, and turn round and come back for more

Hold me down and strip me to the bone
Shoot my soul and smash it with a stone
Take my heart, you can take all of me
Just keep me evermore, my dear

Through dark nights and chemicals and boring old booze
We screamed supplications, alone in our pews
With thunder and lightning surrounding the walls
We smashed down the barricade

Now alone in my chamber I scratch at the floor
I call them to hound me, those sweet dogs of war

Hold me down and strip me to the bone
Shoot my soul and smash it with a stone
Take my heart, you can take all of me
Just keep me evermore, my dear

So sweet and domestic, so rare and unseen
So mighty, majestic, so fair it’s obscene
I’ll scream for dominion. I’ll cry for your fists
And take every bite with a smile

Hold me down and strip me to the bone
Shoot my soul and smash it with a stone
Take my heart, you can take all of me
Just keep me evermore, my dear

Hold me down and tear me apart
Shoot my soul and back to the start
Take my heart, you can take all of me
Just keep me evermore, my dear
