lyrics

I don’t have time for you to be my
Conqueror or conquest, friend or foe
The sun’s coming up now and you’ve got to go

But I don’t want to fight you anymore
Just touch my skin or else I’ll never let go

I can’t decide if I should be afraid
Will you strike me down if I laugh in your face
Beat you till daybreak and kick out your teeth
My knuckles and bones ache but I give no relief

And I don’t want to fight you anymore
Just touch my skin or else I’ll never let go
Ask me my name I’ll tell you each dirty letter
Just promise that you’ll change it to something better

And I thought I couldn’t hurt you
But I could not have been more wrong
Why else would I be holding on

You don’t need protection from people like me
So I’ve stopped pretending to like what I see
I think you’ve a soft spot beneath your thick skin
For people who fight even you for what they believe in

And I don’t want to fight you anymore
Just touch my skin or else I’ll never let go
Ask me my name I’ll tell you each dirty letter
Just promise that you’ll change it to something better
