i'll make a moat of my blood
stream if you'll cross to me
before the drawbridge is up
so no one can get to us

i'll be the dragon demanding
all your most precious things
and when you don't choose to be with me
lover i'll eat you up

no one can hurt you
safe in my bedroom
i am a monster
i'm scared of the dark too
i'd light a candle if it wouldn't scare you
to see me like this with my claws and my teeth and my

no one can hurt you
safe in my bedroom
i am a monster
i'm more afraid than you
i'd turn a light on but i do not dare to
reveal all the need that i hide when i don't speak

so i won't speak
there's nothing i need to say
that you're not already thinking

here in your company
no one can hurt me
i am a monster
who'd ever love me
i was not promised
a happy ending
but i would be happy with you thinking of me

i'll make a song of my silence
if you'll sing to me
like i was the child
you sent down the nile
toward his destiny

who put the sword in the stone instead of the ironworks?
who showed little red a path through those woods?
who put the window in every jail in those fairy tales?

you be the portrait of dorian
i'll be the nail
