Lyrics

Please, baby, can't you see my mind's a burnin' Hell?
I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
My heart apart as well
Tonight you told me that you ache for something new
And some other woman is lookin' like something
That might be good for you.

Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

Please, baby, can't you see I'm trying to explain?
I've been here before and I'm locking the door
And I'm not going back again
Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
That holds you down today.

Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

I'm the only one, baby
I'm the only one
Ain't nobody else is gonna love you, baby
Ain't nobody else is gonna love you.

    I enjoy this soulful, passionate song. Did you ever notice the weird phrasing in this part: "it's only fear that makes you run/ the demons that you're hiding from" ? The "from" is in the wrong place. If this were prose, she would say "it's only fear that makes you run FROM the demons from which you are hiding." But that would be a pain to sing. By doing it her way, it sounds less awkward and has the added bonus of rhyming run and from.

    Oh man! She can really ROCK! I love the way she sings the chorus. I love the beginning & how the song just takes off from there.
