lyrics

I want to be loved by every woman and man
More than any one has ever been
I'll admit that I am vain, but then
Show me any one who is not
I guess that I've got a whole lot
To learn from her

Eternal feminine ghost who resides
In you and in all women and men
I'll admit that I'm afraid, and don't
Want to bring you down, but I want you
Embedded in the sweetest nectar
Is the gravest poison

I've asked too much of love before
I'd rather not make the same mistake again
Is sex misunderstood if one's dream
Is to be wild, and the other's, to tame?

O, marrow of my life, I'm a coward
But I try to seem brave

Am I only the intersection of other people's love?
Particle manifested by affection's elusive higgs boson?
