Love and other moments
And feelings of aggression

Love come quickly
It's on the brink
Love come quickly
It's in my skin
Love and other socially acceptable emotions are morphine
Cleverly concealing primal urges often felt but rarely seen

Lift me up into that privileged point of view
Love don't leave me
Because I console myself that
I really do
I'm gunning down romance
But heartache and misery

I'm going to take these broken wings
And learn to fly away
