  1 You don't want to talk about it
  2 Like what's been going on
  3 For such a long
  4 Time
  5 You think you may, but then you doubt it
  6 You want so badly to believe
  7 And so you keep
  8 On trying
  9 Trying
  10 You close the door
  11 Pretend you don't care anymore
  12 But you still can't stop the pain
  13 You go back again
 
  14 She's the creature that rules men's hearts
  15 She'll convince you that it's real
  16 And then she'll steal
  17 You blind
  18 Green jealous going to tear you apart
  19 She'll slip you something to believe
  20 And then she'll leave
  21 You crying
  22 Crying
  23 You close the door
  24 Nail your head to the floor
  25 But you still can't stop the pain
  26 You go back again
 
  27 She's the voice in the night
  28 The twist of the knife
  29 Aphrodite
  30 And you still can't stop the pain
 
  31 No matter how you try to frame it
  32 All the chances that you take
  33 You still can't make
  34 It fine
  35 Can't control, can't contain it
  36 Way to steep, you're loosing sleep,
  37 You're in too deep
  38 You're dying
  39 Crying
  40 She's the voice in the night
  41 The twist of the knife
  42 Aphrodite
  43 And you still can't stop the pain
  44 You go back again
  45 Go back again
