Track Name: I Won't Change You
You can tie the rope
I will take the weight
I will let you be the trap
If I can be the bait
You can be the words
That I don’t want to speak
I will let you take the strain
If you’ll let me be weak

So stand in my way
Lead me astray
I won’t refuse, it’s up to you now
I could change my ways if I want to
But I won’t change you
Show me a sign
Or leave me behind
There’s nothing left for me to prove now
I could change my mind if I want to
But I won’t change you
I won’t change you
I won’t change you

Once I had the heart
To love without a plan
I never questioned why
I fell into your hands
So maybe you are dirt
Then I must be the rain
And when your earth is parched and worn
I will fall again

So stand in my way
Lead me astray
I won’t refuse, it’s up to you now
I could change my ways if I want to
But I won’t change you
Show me a sign
Or leave me behind
There’s nothing left for me to prove now
I could change my mind if I want to
But I won’t change you
I won’t change you
I won’t change you
Track Name: Jealous Eros
Cut to a kiss
Easily missed
But landed with precision
Like a boxer’s expert fist
If I give in
So it begins
We’re free to make our own mistakes
But where does that leave him?

Baiting a trail to the intimate
What if I chose to give into it?
To give into it

Here
Jealous eros waits
Stalking in with green eyes glaring
Daring you to stray
Thieving eros plays
Stealing in with practiced fingers
Sure to linger

Looking at you
I could be moved
Yeah and easily persuaded
Into what you’d have me do
But not when I know
What you would stake
It isn’t yours to offer me
And isn’t mine to take

Tight as the grip of a tourniquet
Keeping a flood of bad blood away
Still you wanna stay

Here
Where jealous eros waits
Stalking in with green eyes glaring
Daring you to stray
Thieving eros plays
Stealing in with practiced fingers
Sure to linger

You long to taste
The muddy water
To slake your thirst
‘Cos you think one drop’s gonna make it stop
But you’ll drown before you ever get enough

We can’t be safe
Here, where jealous eros waits

We’re not safe here
Here, where thieving eros plays
Stealing in with practiced fingers
Sure to linger

The hazards of love
Always, the hazards of love
