It was long after midnight When we got to unconditional love She said, 'Sure, my heart is boundless But don't push my limits too far' I said, 'If love was so transcendent I don't understand these boundaries' She said, 'Just don't disappoint me You know how complex women are'
I'll be around If you don't let me down too far I'll be around If you don't let me down
It was just before sunrise When we started on traditional roles She said, 'Sure, I'll be your partner But don't make too many demands' I said, 'If love has these conditions I don't understand those songs you love' She said, 'This is not a love song This isn't fantasyland'
Don't go too far A phosphorescent wave on a tropical sea is a cold fire Don't cross the line The pattern of moonlight on the bedroom floor is a cold fire Don't let me down The flame at the heart of a pawnbroker's diamond is a cold fire Don't break the spell The look in your eyes as you head for the door is a cold fire
I'll be around If you don't push me down too far I'll be around If you don't push me down
Love is blind if you are gentle Love can turn to a long, cold burn...
