IN NEED OF REPRIEVE

(When I'm Alone)


 
 
   you were

   a stone in my shoe

   a gun to my head

   I didn't know this could happen

   you were

   a flame in my heart

   aflame in my bed

   I didn't know this could happen

   you were

   all that I saw

   something I said

   I didn't know this could happen
