    Lyrics

    Please, baby, can't you see my mind's a burnin' Hell?
    I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
    My heart apart as well
    Tonight you told me that you ache for something new
    And some other woman is lookin' like something
    That might be good for you.

    Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
    Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
    And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

    Please, baby, can't you see I'm trying to explain?
    I've been here before and I'm locking the door
    And I'm not going back again
    Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
    You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
    That holds you down today.

    Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
    Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
    And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

    Go on and hold her 'til the screaming is gone
    Go on, believe her when she tells you nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one who'll walk across a fire for you
    And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

    And I'm the only one who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone, I'm the only one.

    I'm the only one, baby
    I'm the only one
    Ain't nobody else is gonna love you, baby
    Ain't nobody else is gonna love you.

      I enjoy this soulful, passionate song. Did you ever notice the weird phrasing in this part: "it's only fear that makes you run/ the demons that you're hiding from" ? The "from" is in the wrong place. If this were prose, she would say "it's only fear that makes you run FROM the demons from which you are hiding." But that would be a pain to sing. By doing it her way, it sounds less awkward and has the added bonus of rhyming run and from.

      Oh man! She can really ROCK! I love the way she sings the chorus. I love the beginning & how the song just takes off from there.
