lyrics

Hello, it’s only me, I know it’s late
Hoped to catch you still awake
And maybe I was wrong to call
guess tonight broke my resolve
I’ve been having that dream again
It seems I always will
I don’t know what the thing means
except it sends me to the telephone and still
I know that love is never free
it bows your head and bends your knees
But there’s no sword without an edge
and I sleep uneasily when you’re not in my bed, cause

I didn’t come to play it safe
I came to win or lose with you
I only live alone awake
cause every night yeah
you pass through
yeah, you pass through

Hello, it’s only me
Yeah, love it’s only me

I didn’t come to play it safe
I came to win or lose with you
And I win or lose with you
I only live alone awake
cause every night, yeah, you pass through
yeah, you pass through
I didn’t come to play it safe
I came to win or lose with you
And I win and lose with you
