The Fire Of Lust

from Dan Whitehouse by Dan Whitehouse



The Fire Of Lust

I can’t stay and love does not last.
I’m a man like all those others in the past.
That made the mistake of believing they could,
follow their desire into the fire of lust.

But it burns like a bastard my friend,
so warm and tempting...
it measures me, the fire of lust.

No warning signal, no light.
Just a punch in the face, you couldn’t really call it a fight.
Leaves you stunned, defenseless, and exposed.
No chance to hit back, you dropped like a stone.

You cry for help, but you’re out there on your own.
In the wilderness looking for a home.
A drunken hand stabbing in the dark,
no going back when you know not where to start.

And it burns like a bastard my friend…
So warm and tempting,
then suddenly, it’s the end.

So give it some thought, is she really so hot,
that you'd give everything for a piece of what she’s got?
Well yeah, maybe so, lust stirs the low...
Lust turns you around when you’ve nowhere else to go.
Lust sends you high and adds weight to your desire.
Lust is a soldier no surrender, he will fight.
Lust is a killer, begging you to kill.
Lust breeds an emptiness that nothing else can fill.

And it burns like a bastard my friend…
it’s so warm and tempting,
then suddenly it’s the end.
