Happiness, lost in the confusion
restless, taking in illusion
that you might stand me, that you might love me

too late, I've fallen under your spell
two lips, words that I will never tell
that I might risk it all for you!

And now I'm cornered
And oh, you've got me standing still
and now I'm right where you want me

I'm paralyzed, waiting for your command
hoping you'll build a path way
far from a dead end
And despite it all
I'm running and screaming
into your arms

I can feel myself following your footsteps
I can feel my heartbeat retrace your rhythms
hands over my eyes, plugs in ears
blocking all senses
I can not turn away from you

And now I'm cornered
And oh, you've got me standing still
and now I'm right where you want me

I'm paralyzed, waiting for your command
hoping you'll build a path way
far from a dead end
And despite it all
I'm running and screaming
into your arms
