lyrics

you’re the fruit i cannot be eating
you’re that sun i shouldn’t see
but every morning
your light shines so bright
it lifts me up
how can i turn away

so we are friends we say
innocently playing on fields of mines
in my dark heart i know it’s a risky game
playing with the fire that lights my heart

it is your fragrance
that has been luring me
but i guess your flower
is just not suiting me
i haven’t bitten in your soft
but oh so tempting
flesh
though you were ripe
hanging from the tree

so we are friends we say
innocently playing on fields of mines
in my dark heart i know it’s a risky game
playing with that fire that lights our hearts

it’s your song i can’t be part of
though you were singing it to me
i love your melody
but i could never sing along
it is the words i don’t believe

so we are friends we say
innocently playing on fields of mines
in my heart i know it’s a risky game
playing with that fire that lights my heart
in my heart i do know what’s wrong
i do know what’s right

in our hearts we do know what’s wrong
we do know what’s right
