I won't let you in, I'll fight you to the end Too close, I can no longer be your friend Love ends, where hate begins You are which of the seven holy sins? Hold you down, surrender to me Mission to the black hole of a distant galaxy You make me strong, can no longer deny The thought of you makes me comply All I ever wanted was you Black and white tableau flame in my mind Of all the memories we left behind All the minutes - I imagine me and you Together, like it was only natural A hushed greeting from you, like a sledgehammer to my loins I feel almost normal when you're near me But I keep myself guarded, unable to face the truth That if I lose myself in you, then me will cease to be I refuse to let go of all the things that I have ever known Love hardens, love breaks, but I won't let you in Pride, I think, is my only sin.
