twisted lyrics – annie lennox

i didn’t want to know you
i didn’t mean to be a friend
but now it seems
i’d run through burnin’ fire
just to see your face again

i didn’t want to hurt you
or be hurt by you
at the closing of the game
but now it seems
too late for that desire
i watched it all go up in flames
i watched it all go up in flames

tell me, darlin’, what would it take
to untie the twist in us
’cause it’s makin’ my heart ache, yeah

under a cloak of darkness
under the covers where we laid
there i spent my dreams with you
now i’ve hid them all away
i guess i’ve hid them all away

nothin’ and no one
touches me like you
but how could i believe in this
when none of it was true? yeah

i knew from the first time that
i set my eyes on you

oh my darlin’, oh my lover
all the words come back to me
i remember, i remember
everything you said to me
we went walking out in silence
underneath the cherry tree
falling blossom, falling blossom
falling from the cherry tree

i remember, i remember
everything you did to me
oh my darlin’, oh my lover
all the words come back to me

i remember, i remember
everything you said to me
we went walking out in silence
underneath the cherry tree
falling blossom, falling blossom
falling from the cherry tree

i remember, i remember
everything you did to me
oh my darlin’, oh my lover
