Snakes

You’re with another woman, with another woman
You’re with another woman, with another woman
My heart has snakes
What is wrong - why can’t I change how I feel?
What is wrong - why don’t I love you less?

Who knows the cure for this sickness in me?
And I need relief from what’s poisoning me

I want a cure, I want relief, I want release, to be at peace now
I want a cure, I want relief, I want release, to be at peace now
All this love: I don’t understand it - what’s wasted love for?
All this love and these snakes inside me – I need a cure

And I don’t want to meet her and I don’t want to be big about it, baby
And I don’t want to make it OK with myself, when it’s not
And I don’t want to change who I am just to try to be loved by you
I just want to know what it feels like to be really loved - utterly loved

You’re with another woman, with another woman
You’re not there when I need you
You’re with another woman, with another woman
My heart has snakes
What is wrong - why can’t I change how I feel?
What is wrong? Nothing makes me love you less

Who knows why we love who we love?
Is it my father, is it my mother, my brother, my son?
I want a cure, I want relief, I want release - to be at peace now
I want a cure, I want to change, I want relief - to be at peace now

All this love: I don’t understand it - what’s wasted love for?
All this love and these snakes in my heart - I need a cure

And I don’t want to meet her and I don’t want to be big about it, thank you
And I don’t want to make it OK with myself, ‘cos it’s not
And I don’t want to change who I am just to try to be loved by you
I just want to know what it feels like to be really loved
Utterly loved

You’re with another woman, with another woman
You’re with another woman, with another woman
My heart has snakes
With another woman,
With another woman..
