lyrics

The sun still rose, the stars still shone,
when two unknown bodies clung to each other just flesh and just bone,

I ain't no sage, I ain't no seer,
I can't tell if the love of my future is something to fear,

And you love who you want to love,
don't ask for my guidance, don't ask for some light from above,
and I,

It seems alright, yeah, the way we feel,
the fact that my mind's an issue, means that it's real,

But before I came, it was you, it was he,
we all got to belong, but I want you to belong to me,

And you love who you want to love,
don't ask for my guidance, don't ask for some light from above,
and I,

Jealousy is a burning fire,
the flames come up, and I'm just a heart for hire,
another blank slate for your perfect face to inspire,
you're never alone, that's the very first rule of desire,

If the passion is real, then that passion is right,
one man's pain is another's unbridled delight,

And it don't affect me you say, not even us,
but it feels like I've been hit by a god damn bus,

And you love who you want to love,
don't ask for my guidance, don't ask for some light from above,
and I,

Jealousy is a burning fire,
the flames come up, and I'm just a heart for hire,
another blank slate for your perfect face to inspire,
you're never alone, that's the very first rule of desire.
