For Wanting You

from Vagabond Ways

  1. For Wanting You
(Elton John, Bernie Taupin) It comes as no surprise Your face filled with lies Hovers all around me in this room. Clouds hung with my dismay A hot bed where we lay Your every kiss tasting like a tomb. If time becomes a judge, If my body holds a grudge It's just because I needed sanctuary. Your skin under my nails My curiosity that failed To save myself for something that I need. I don't wanna bleed Or bruise up black and blue. Do I deserve these things All for wanting you ? Like some virgin with her cloth I play the goddess coming through Now I play the parting slave All for wanting you. We do things 'cause we must The law of love and lust Comes together just like oil on flame. I looked into your eyes, You saw me naked for a while, How d'you like it in my little nest ? Who was really using who ? In here the scent of you Stains the sheets with memory and lust. When I get back on the street Tell everybody that I meet Maybe these aren't scars, they're only rust. I don't wanna bleed Or bruise up black and blue Do I deserve these things All for wanting you ? Like some virgin with her cloth I play the goddess coming through Now I play the parting slave All for wanting you.
