Lyrics

Death by curiosity, strangled down upon on his knees
Tell me how, that it could be, it’s you who gives me stagefright
And even though the saints would swear that lovers like a leather chair
There is no point but I do declare
It’s you who gives me stagefright
Its you, its you, its you, you, give me stagefright
Its you, its you, its you, you, you take the spotlight
Time is now, time is late, raise your hands, that feels great
Come with me, take me there, open arms, open air
Drunk all the finest labels, got stoned and then unable, to f**k beneath the
table
But that’s just what they’d try to do
But if you tried to stop them, he’d go to his apartment
And girls would gather round with pit bull dogs and heel shoes
Its you, its you, its you, you, its you, you give me stagefright
Its you, its you, its you, you, you take the spotlight
Time is now, time is late
Raise your hands, that feels great
Come with me, take me there, open arms, open air
This moment, this moment, you’ll take me, you’ll take me there
No time for hesitations, no twisted explanations
Only one destination
It’s paradise — inside your room
But if you tried to stop them, they’d go to their apartment
And girls would gather round with pit bull dogs and heel shoes
That’s you, it’s you, its you, you, give me stagefright
Its you, its you, its you, you, you take the spotlight
This moment, in this moment, you’ll take me there
Time is now, time is late, raise your hands, that feels great
Come with me, take me there, open arms, open air
Time is now, time is late, raise your hands, that feels great
Come with me, take me there, open arms, open air
Time is now, time is late, raise your hands, that feels great
Come with me, take me there, open arms, open air
