lyrics

I would rather see a dragon, basilisk
Both less poisonous
You slither underneath my wall
All I need is one look

I hate/love you

I would rather see a scorpion, your maidens
Much less venomous
Sprigs in their hair
All I need is one to turn you

I love/hate you
I hate the way you

Breathe in, the way you breathe out
The way you pick me when I wear
Sprigs in my hair

All I need is one, all I need...

I love/hate/love/hate/love the way you

Breathe fire, the way you burn me
The way your tongue splits in two
When you kiss me I can see
Only one of you

You care when I wear
Sprigs in my hair

I hate/love love/love you

I love the way you
Slither under my wall

All I need is to be
Without you, with you
