Did I Say That? (AC edit)

So this is what it feels like
To be the one left behind
To give it all you got then find
You’ve already changed your mind

And I don’t want to be here wide awake
Clinging to a love that can’t be saved
And hanging off the edge of every word that you say

And so I ask myself,
Do I love you so much that I’m willing to let you go?
And at the tip of my tongue the answer was, Yes
But, at the bottom of my heart I’m wondering:

Did I say that? Oh no, no
Did I say that? Oh-ho
Sometimes you know I overreact
And what I say is not a matter of fact
And I wish that I could take it all back…

And you know I’d drag myself through the fire at your side
And you know the gates of Heaven are surely open wide
And I need some sympathy here
And I need someone to call my own
I’m standing in the light of my mistakes
And begging you: Come home!

And so I ask myself,
Do I love you so much that I’m willing to let you go?
And at the tip of my tongue the answer was, Yes
But at the back of my mind I’m wondering:

Did I say that? Oh no, no
Did I say that? Oh-ho
Sometimes you know I overreact
And what I say is not a matter of fact
And I wish that I could take it all back

And I need some sympathy here
And I want love to call my own
I wanna take you in the backseat now
And slowly drive you home

And I know you need some time to run and hide
But the truth is hard to swallow when you’re choking on your pride

And I don’t wanna be this wide awake
Fighting for a love that I can’t save
And hangin’ on the edge of every word you say
Knowing that it might make me cry

And I don’t want to be this complicating
You can drag it out but I’ll be waiting
I stumbled on I love you tonight
But it sounded like goodbye

Did I say that?
Did I say that?
Ooh, did I tell you that I loved you
‘Cause it would have been a matter of fact

Ooh, did I say that?
—this time I’m walking through fire
Hmm, did I say that?
—this time I’ll feed your desire
Hmm, did I say that?
—this time I stand by your side
Ooh, did I say that?
—this time I will be your pride
Did I say that?
—this time I’m not letting go
Did I say that?
—this time I’ll have and I’ll hold
Did I say that?
—this time I’m walkin’ through fire
Did I say that?
And I wish that I could take it all back...

So this is what it feels like
To be the one left behind
To give it all you got then find
That you’ve already changed your mind....

Decadent Wish

Oh now lover, hungry lover, we devour each other
I should run for cover but you keep turning water to wine
Dangerous and yet divine

You back me in a corner with your sugar and lace
In every breathless night there’s less and less escape
And you’re the ultimate confession here at heaven’s gate
And I pray, I pray that you’ll be mine

‘Cause I know you–are a decadent wish
A siren’s call with a terminal kiss
And I’d give it all for one more taste of your lips
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours

Oh now far from being perfect, unions of the spirit
Skating on the surface of something pure and genuine
Dangerous and yet divine

Now you’re tired of my defenses and your grip’s too tight
You know I’m going under, oh but it feels so right
If it’s wrong it doesn’t matter ‘cause I’m satisfied
And I pray, I pray that you’ll be mine

‘Cause I know you–are a decadent wish
A siren’s call with a terminal kiss
And I’d give it all for one more taste of your lips
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours

You can’t even touch my body
I can’t even touch your soul
But how do you know
I bet on me to turn you on again
I need to turn you on again...

‘Cause I know you–are a decadent wish
A siren’s call with a terminal kiss
And I’d give it all for one more taste of your lips
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours

‘Cause I know you–are a decadent wish
A siren’s call with a terminal kiss
And I’d give it all for one more taste of your lips
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours
If I crash on the shore I’ll be yours
(if I crash on the shore I’ll be yours) And I’d give it all
(if I crash on the shore I’ll be yours) Yes I’d give it all
(if I crash on the shore I’ll be yours) And I’d give it all
(if I crash on the shore I’ll be yours) For just a taste of your lips....
