Sweet Lovely Curse

You can love who you want to but my heart will never change
And give your life to another but my soul still bears your name
And no amount of holy water could ever put my love in reverse
You're my first, may be my worst, my sweet lovely curse

I go out with handsome suitors but not one gives half a thrill
And the more I try to surrender the more it makes me ill
And all my efforts become so futile no matter how long no matter how much I rehearse
You're my first, you may be my worst, my sweet lovely curse

And it seems to me I'm the only one between you and me
Who ain't having no fun
And this misery will never leave until you come back
Baby come back baby please come back

And find your way straight to my door make this nightmare go away
Make it better so much better better than before
But this time will you please stay
Cause it's been nothing nothing but madness
And only your kisses your touch will make it disperse
You're my first you may be my worst, my sweet lovely curse

You're my first you may be worst, my sweet lovely curse
Oh yea
