Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Why does he open me, only to shut me out again?
Guess that's just him; I wouldn't take it from another man.
Guess he needs time to trust me right,
So I can't let him kiss me goodnight.
'Cause he has my heart in the palm of his hand.
Can't get it back, oh, I've tried all I can.
He's just so sweet from his head to his feet.
And if he won't love me, I'm in deep.
He has me singing "Scarborough Fair,"
About a man who is so frightened about a love affair.
He sets hard tasks so that his love can't pass,
And ends up lonely til the last.
Oh, he's dense water, deeper down.
He makes me forget everything my mother warned.
I think about him every night,
And I fall asleep holding my pillow tight.
He has my love in the palm of his hand.
His gentle touch makes me scream out loud.
His wicked kiss made me feel in bliss.
And he's the only love I miss.
Oh, he's dense water, deeper down.
He makes me forget everything my mother warned.
I think about him every night,
And I fall asleep holding my...

Oh, he’s dense water, deeper down.
He makes me forget everything my mother warned.
I think about him every night,
And I fall asleep holding my pillow tight.
He has my love in the palm of his hand.
His gentle touch made me scream out loud
Hijacked kiss made me feel in bliss,
And he’s the only love I miss.
