Make me fumble
Make me fall
Make my heart stop and start

To tremble uncontrollably
Let my eyes see fear make desire
Keep those who long apart
Forbid the kiss
And leave us innocent
Of the things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Make me remember
Make me forget
Make my mind unable

To force the body to do its will
Let it be right for belief and denial
To share a space in the heart and leave us only to imagine
About the things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Make me pretend
Make me expect
Things can go and come to pass

Without trial or tribulation
Let this life space and time
Leave my body with permanent marks
Faded scars and lines
But not a single impression
Of the things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Let me be tempted
Let me be torn
But make my thoughts pure and not

Morally corrupt in form
Let us sleep tonight
Let innocence lie in our dreams and secret hearts
With burning desire
A need to know and do

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark
