Mind tattoos and raven kisses

Screaming songs no one misses

Silent fears with tragic loss

Cashier can't count the cost

When we're paying life in dimes

There is no bail for our crimes

Because we murdered purity

Thinking we bought maturity

Saving ourselves from ignorance

Really only throwing away innocence

---

So cold I want to scream

Wake me up from this dream

Never loved me

Never loved me

Hold me close and don't let go

Even if it isn't love I know

I need you

I need you

Warm my bed and save my tears

Lustful nights dim the years

For tonight

For tonight

---

Bodies warm each others hearts

Then again that's where pain starts

Lying, lusting, under the stars

Trying to heal the old scars

Hardly realizing they're making more

With the affections they explore

Intimacy without foundation

Always fearing isolation

And suddenly feeling obligation

To kill imagination

For the sensation

Of false adoration

---

So cold I want to scream

Wake me up from this dream

Never loved me

Never loved me

Hold me close and don't let go

Even if it isn't love I know

I need you

I need you

Warm my bed and save my tears

Lustful nights dim the years

For tonight

For tonight

---

Inside it's killing you

But you still hold on

Loves not getting through

And now he's gone

How much longer will you pursue

All these facades

Saying each time you never knew

Against all odds

Next time will be right

Next time he'll be true

It won't be one night

Time to start over anew

Tell yourself all the lies

Put on a new disguise

Making yourself someone else

So you can fall again

---

So cold I want to scream

Wake me up from this dream

Never loved me

Never loved me

Hold me close and don't let go

Even if it isn't love I know

I need you

I need you

Warm my bed and save my tears

Lustful nights dim the years

For tonight

For tonight

Remember it's only tonight…
