Oh God, would I give her up to him
If she told me he was better
And that I didn't have the chance
That he did to impress her?

Does she test me, does she know
That I would sooner turn and go
And find another
If that is what she'd have me do?

Would she stop and hold me near
If she could see the future here
Would hold me if she held me
To her too?

Would not fight with hands or words
Another man, no, that's absurd
Or would I, and would victory
Betray me?

Or is that what she's waiting on
A pounding down one standing man?
To kiss her in the blood embrace
Of victory

To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory (victory)
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory

Oh would I give her up at all
Because I know it could not be better
To live without what she provides
When we're alone and I undress her

Does she test me, does she know
That I would never turn and go
But find another
If that's what she'd have me do?

"Charlie. I've, uh, I've been with another man
Aren't you gonna say anything? Just gonna sit there?
Charlie, I didn't know when you were coming back or if you ever would
I tell ya, the men around here don't respect anything
I told you all the guys that called me up
And then Cliff
Cliff didn't make a pass at me, I mean, he didn't even.. do it, at all, Charlie
I knew what he wanted, but he never did anything about it
And then it just seemed like that two of us just had to."


(Charlie:)
"I don't think I'm up for any more of this
Why don't you go to bed? I'll work this all out."


(Woman:)
"What are you gonna do?"

(Charlie:)
"I'm just gonna sit here."

Or is that what she's waiting on
A pounding down one standing man?
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
To kiss her in a blood embrace
Of victory
