lyrics

Hello, come in – here, let me take your coat
Nice to see you’re thinking of what I wrote
Is there something that you wanted to see?
Come in, let’s begin, now please take a seat

Play it open, place it flat on the floor
Obfuscation? There’s no time anymore
Let us play a game of mutual chance
Respond, s’il vous plaît and bring yourself back

Pre-Chorus:
And you know I’m going to carry your weight
You press down; is that all that you can take?
I decline in any way to dissuade…
As you place another stone

Chorus:
I left a message today
You are the apple I crave
Let’s be together enslaved
From lust there is no escape

Take a breath and suck it back down your throat
Keep your eyes open, don’t you dare let go
Wrap your ribbons round and make it pretty
Transformation to the other’s conceit

Now create a world, don’t take it away
Curtains open – let them all see the play
Don’t get tired, come on – just pull on through
Light the script on fire, make up something new

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

And you know I’m going to carry your weight
You press down; is that all that you can take?
I decline in any way to dissuade…
And I want it so bad

Bring me to my knees
Supplication never was so sweet
Hands down, your collar frees you to care…I’m aware…

Is there nothing more to say?

Chorus

You are the apple I crave
