Minus the Sting



Crush me in your joking ways Not even a glance to make it okay Weasel your way into my mind Where the heart is tangled in your pride I seek the light that caresses your hair I seek you alone but you are never there Whenever I am by myself in this darkened place I think of the words you have said—I see your face And every night there is an aching in my soul A feeling you will certainly never know Being everything I can, I try to help you see That I would do anything For your love—minus the sting For your love Minus the sting Minus the sting
