Kingdom Of Desire
You used to be on fire, now you chill me to the bone

We used to fly like angels, now we're sinking like a stone

You say you're trying to help me but that ain't the way it feels

I think you're trying to kill me with those stiletto heels



Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing

I been stabbed in the back babe

And if you don't love me, I'll never feel a thing



And oh, one thing I know, there's only one place left for me to go



Chorus:

Going back to the kingdom of desire, going down to the valley of the gun

I'm gonna stand too close to the fire, I'm gonna fly too close to the sun



They say the king of love sleeps on a velvet bed

My sheets feel like sandpaper, and my pillow feels like lead

But as sure as Atlantis sank into the sea

I'm sinking like a stone babe, that's how it's got to be



Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing

I been stabbed in the back babe

And if you don't love me, I'll never feel a thing



And oh, if I don't have you, there's only one thing left for me to do



chorus



(Instrumental break)



When you dig up God's little acre, you lose all peace of mind

You stare into the distance, looking for a sign

But that sign it never comes babe, your wishes won't come true

You keep praying for the rain while the sun beats down on you



And oh, one thing I know, there's only one place left for me to go



chorus repeats 2x



I'm gonna fly too close to the sun, yeah

I'm gonna fly too close to the sun
