lyrics

I don't want to know what you've done
Betrayal only makes me feel numb
All I hope is that it was fun
I'll forgive you

Like a moth drawn to a flame
You chew me up & spit me out again
But I need your warmth to survive
Darkness is pain
My love for you it binds me like a chain
I'm blinded here by the light

I don't want to know where you've been
Or who has been caressing your skin
As long as you keep letting me in
I'll forgive you

Like a moth drawn to a flame
You chew me up & spit me out again
But I need your warmth to survive
Darkness is pain
My love for you it binds me like a chain
I'm blinded here by the light

The sun goes down
My demons rest for the day
The tide rolls in
And all my pain is washed away

I don't want to know what is next
I've sacrificed all my self respect
But nobody is ever perfect
I'll forgive you

Like a moth drawn to a flame
You chew me up & spit me out again
But I need your warmth to survive
Darkness is pain
My love for you it binds me like a chain
I'm blinded here by the light

I don't want to know anything
I'm scared of all the hurt it will bring
At least it gave me something to sing
I'll forgive you
