Dangerous Waters


I love you! I hate you! It just makes no sense.
When we’re together I have no defense.
Like the Sirens of old, I can’t resist your song.
I run to your arms though I know that it’s wrong.

I can’t keep on lying to one that I love.
I kneel in the darkness sending prayers above
but the answers are lost in a rush of desire
and good intentions are drowned by your fire.

(Refrain)
Like a ship at the mercy of a wind-blown sea
I lose all control when it’s just you and me.
If I had the strength you know I would flee
away from these dangerous waters.


The vows that I made as I held her hand
are awash in a sea that I don’t understand.
The tides pull me out ‘til I can’t see the shore.
I’m adrift in a boat without any oars.

Her love was a beacon, guiding me to the light
but this dark passion has brought on the night.
I stumble in darkness, a nightmarish hell,
knowing I’ll end up back under your spell.

(Refrain)
Like a ship at the mercy of a wind-blown sea
I lose all control when it’s just you and me.
If I had the strength you know I would flee
away from these dangerous waters
.

I can’t change direction or alter my course.
I’m swept up in a current that’s like a dark force.
I should turn away and just let it be
but this dark passion just won’t set me free.

(Refrain)
Like a ship at the mercy of a wind-blown sea
I lose all control when it’s just you and me.
If I had the strength you know I would flee
away from these dangerous waters.



(Fade)
Save me from these dangerous waters.
Set me free from these dangerous waters.
