Lyrics


Corrupt

I could corrupt you

In a heartbeat

You think you're so special

Think you're so sweet

What are you trying

Don't even tempt me

Soon you'll be crying

And wishing you'd dreamt me


You'll be calling out my name

When you need someone to blame


I could corrupt you

It would be easy

Watching you suffer

Girl, it would please me

But I wouldn't touch you

With my little finger

I know it would crush you

My memory would linger


You'd be crying out in pain

Begging me to play my games


I could corrupt you

It would be ugly

They could sedate you

But what good would drugs be

But I wouldn't touch you

Put my hands on your hips

It would be too much to

Place my lips on your lips


You'd be calling out my name

Begging me to play my games
