The Curse

This song is by Lydia Lunch and appears on the EP Heart of Darkness (1985).

You wondered about love, is there something stronger?
We'd kill for the same things
You own it now, it's my hate

Your beauty puts this curse on me
And it's called love, but it's not love at all
I know now that I don't have you for that long
You don't have me at all
It's the disappointments of positive thinking

All I really wanted was the impossible
Never is never enough
Not enough is just too much to ask
We're just a thin line between now and never
And I may have you for less than that
Nobody, nobody sticks around for that long
Not me
But I look at it differently now
And I couldn't care less
Time dies when you're having none
I don't want you around anymore

Your face is more pain than it's worth
Get your hands off my knee
Nothing is better than half of something
Take your fingers away from me
Forever isn't nearly long enough,
But until I die is way too long
You're an angel in thought,
I'm nothing at all, nothing
But you're a demon at heart

I must have kissed you a hundred times
By the hundredth time your interest was no more
A million years ago
I could almost remember the taste of you in my mouth, sliding
Couldn't satisfy you even if I died
But I look at it differently now
And I couldn't care less
I don't want you around anymore,
We were fucking in the glow of some 50's rerun
But when I'm alone it's worse
Look, in black and white, just you and me for never
