They will show me what I want to see
We will watch without grief
We stay one step ahead of relief

You tell me we've been praying
For a bright and clever hell
I think we've been forced to our knees but I can't tell

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

It's so hot in here
What are they trying to hatch?
We must not be frail, we must watch

Now that I'm out of touch with anger
Now I have nothing to live up to
I don't know when to stop joking
When I stop I hope I am with you

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

It's so hot in here
What are they trying to hatch?
We must not be frail, we must watch

Now that I'm out of touch with anger
Now I have nothing to live up to
I don't know when to stop joking
When I stop I hope I am with you
