lyrics

LUC:
I lie awake and wonder why I think of her in the dark
She is exposing the attachment of the jugum with sharps
And I am frightened by this feeling that she might be too smart
I don't dare admit to something that could tear me apart

DIANA: Your reputation echoes like a warning under my heart
I know I'm nothing but a number you would love to discard
But I'm waiting to be noticed, why does it feel so hard
You are a boy I've worshiped for so long from afar

LUC: I wanna just crush you
Subdue and reduce you
Cause you really scare me
It's not a feeling I'm used to

DIANA: I wanna just touch you
Embrace and unlace you
Cause you really slay me
It's not a feeling I'm used to

LUC: I want you to crown me
Admit you revere me
And for that I am ready
to sleep with the enemy

DIANA: I want you to kiss me
Admit that I'm pretty
And for that I am ready
to sleep with the enemy

LUC: After histology, | I swore that amends would be ardent
I would make it up to her, with all of my charisma hence

DIANA:
I didn't trust him but | I never said I didn't want him
didn't wanna think about how bedding him would be a problem

LUC: I stole her notes for xenoembryo' and physio'
the girl has got some major chops

DIANA:
I may have mentioned that some refugees were human breeds
The derivates of changeling slaves

LUC: and would
you believe
I began
to pray for a miracle

could I want her
more than
fighting for first
I fear I won't

DIANA:
(and) would
you believe
I began
to pray for a miracle

could
he still love
me when
he knows
the truth I fear he won't

(Duet Chorus)

BOTH: Tell me platonic is the word for what this feeling is
breathing your breath in silence, sighing your name awhile and-
Your fingers tighten in my hair and I am mesmerized
Don't leave me so frustrated, I've waited and I've waited
Tracing circles round your desires

Give me the strength to tell you what I want before I die here of virtue


BOTH: I wanna just touch you
Embrace and unlace you
Cause you really slay me
It's not a feeling I'm used to

I want you to kiss me
Don't care if it breaks me
'cause I'm more than ready
to sleep with the enemy

to sleep with the enemy
to sleep with the enemy
I'm more than ready
to sleep with the enemy
