lyrics

it started with a side glance
put me in a trance
i got a taste for disaster
i know i’m not a slave
but i smell it on your neck, girl
you taste like a master
you try to look away
but your gaze stays caught
on the corner of my smile
it started with side glance
put me in a trance
desperate just to be defiled

for one night — one night to change it all
one night — one night to bring the fall
just because we shouldn’t
don’t mean that it ain’t right
i may not be good for you
but i know i’m good for one night

i’m tired of love
i’m looking for something cheap
you can throw me away when you’re done, little girl
i know i ain’t the one to keep
my life is a cage
i’ve been dying to escape
kindness will never set me free
it started with a side glance
put me in a trance
that’s exactly where i think i’m supposed to be

for one night — one night to change it all
one night — one night to bring the fall
just because we shouldn’t
don’t mean that it ain’t right
i may not be good for you
but i know i’m good for one night

let me break my heart upon the anvil of your back
your tongue can be my rubicon, the border on my map
i’m never going home again, i hope someday i miss it
but tonight i’m here, lost with you, my weekend in the district

i run and i run
like a shadow from the sun
but i haven’t found a way to slip my skin
i pause to catch a breath
feel the mourning in my chest
it’s time to start running again
