Keep Me In The Dark
by Arcadia

When the evening sunlight's fingers stretch across the floor
Cover up your eyes with feathers softly close the door
Take me in your heavy lips take me where the shadows slide
I know you're blind for secrets turning fast and loose
The lacey intrigue of this weekend should not be abused
You can take me where you want but could you take me all the time

Away yeah wait a little longer don't go too far
I wouldn't lie, I wouldn't like you keeping me in the dark

Tender is the truce I'm tasting but watching you dictates
Heady nights of sleepless wasting a face I can't escape
We could wave the world goodbye to all the boys cheerio

Away yeah wait a little longer don't go too far
I wouldn't lie, I wouldn't like you keeping me in the dark

Help me 'cause I'm sinking deeper, tell me what to say
When without words you call me closer each time you turn away
Something inside you cries but is it something I'll never find

Away yeah oh wait a little longer before we go too far
I wouldn't lie, I wouldn't like to think you were keeping me in the dark

(Taylor, Rhodes, LeBon)

"Some days, you just want the dragon to win."

(And try typing out the lyrics to an Arcadia song while listening to a remix of The Scissor Sisters' "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'". It ain't easy.)
(And, yes, I expect everyone to argue over Line 4 above.)
