Deep Enough to Bleed


Oh I need your attention, some affection
But no protection
Oh I need your dedication
Some complication

When the morning comes
The night's dreams will be lost
Those who are damaged and wrong
I'll leave their beds
And head to god knows where
Go for your heart instead

But we'll be alright
Cause I only cut deep enough to bleed
You'll be alright
Cause it's not me that you need

I see you in their eyes
It's me that they despise
Don't you dare cry
Cause your eyes take me to the sky
My innocence is yours
Your looks and your lures

I don't need your permission
Just competition
I need your submission
Without condition
You want to give your heart
You know I've loved you from the start

I only cut deep enough to bleed
Cause it's not me that you need

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
