Lyrics Edit

There was a time,
When I was so broken-hearted,
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine.
The tables have turned, yeah,
Cause me and them ways have parted.
That kind of love was the killin' kind.
Now all I want is someone I can't resist,
I know all I need to know by the way I got kissed.

I was cryin' when I met you,
Now I'm tryin' to forget you,
Love is sweet misery.
I was cryin' just to get you,
Now I'm dyin' cause I let you,
Do what you do - down on me.

Now there's not even breathin' room,
Between pleasure and pain.
Yeah you cry when we're makin' love,
Must be one and the same.

It's down on me,
Yeah I got to tell you one thing.
It's been on my mind,
Girl, I gotta say.
We're partners in crime,
You got that certain something.
What you give to me,
Takes my breath away.
Now the word out on the street,
Is the devil's in your kiss.
If our love goes up in flames,
It's a fire I can't resist.

I was cryin' when I met you,
Now I'm tryin' to forget you,
Your love is sweet misery.
I was cryin' just to get you,
Now I'm dyin' cause I let you,
Do what you do to me.

Cause what you got inside,
Ain't where your love should stay.
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love,
'Till you give your heart away.

Yeah!
I was cryin' when I met you,
Now I'm tryin' to forget you,
Your love is sweet misery.
I was cryin' just to get you,
Now I'm dyin' to let you,
Do what you do what you do down to me, yeah.
I was cryin' when I met you,
Now I'm tryin' to forget you,
Your love is sweet misery.
I was cryin' when I met you,
Now I'm dyin' to let you,
Do what you do down to me.
