about

The skeleton of this song was mapped out in Vancouver and sat on the back burner until the big move. Recording really commenced in September of '17 and this song was to be the lead-off track for Satyr's Day Parade. The video for this one is clumped in with the other "parade" videos and will be moved to a new playlist soon. This was also the first song recorded so it deserves a second look. Put her back under the microscope.

lyrics

I used to say I'd live a quiet life
But baby, that's not where you are
I used to say I'd never stay out late
Until I hitched on to your star

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain ..

I used to say I had a single dream
But the ones you have are real
I used to save mine for a rainy day
All hands, all touch .. no feel

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name ..

Until I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you ..

I used to say I'd always keep in touch
Now you're the only one I call
I used to say I'd never stalk my prey
But now your picture's on my wall

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh yeah I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you (my love for you)

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love

Yes I'm strangled .. strangled .. strangled
strangled .. strangled .. strangled

(My love for you)
