"Iodine" lyrics

Iodine

I needed you
I knew I was in danger
Of losing
What I used to think was mine
You let me love you
Till I was a failure
You let me love you
Till I was a failure
Your beauty
On my bruise like iodine

I asked you if a man
Could be forgiven
And though I failed at love
Was this a crime?
You said, "Don't worry
Don't worry, darling"
You said, "Don't worry
Don't you worry, darling
There are many ways
A man can serve his time"

You covered up that place
I could not master
It wasn't dark enough
To shut my eyes
So I was with you
Oh sweet compassion
Yes I was with you
Oh sweet compassion
Compassion with the sting of iodine

Your saintly kisses reeked of iodine
Your fragrance with a fume of iodine
And pity in the room like iodine

Your sister fingers burned like iodine
And all my wanton lust was iodine
My masquerade of trust was iodine
And everywhere the flare of iodine
