If somebody up there likes me somebody up there cares 
Deliver me from evil save me from these wicked snares 
Not into temptation  not to cliffs of fall 
On to revelation  and lesson for us all 

She walked into the room on the arm of my best friend 
I knew whatever happened our friendship would end 
Chemical reaction  desire at first sight 
Mystical attraction  turned out all my lights 

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye 
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die 

I don't know if it's pain or pleasure that I seek 
My flesh was all too willing, my spirit guide was weak 
I was deadly certain his thoughts for me weren't kind 
A switchblade in his pocket, murder on his mind 

Blessed St. Theresa the whore of Babylon 
Madonna and my mother all rolled into one 
You've got to understand me, I'm not a piece of wood 
Francis of Assisi could never be this good 



The less I need the more I get 
Make me chaste but not just yet 
It's a promise or a lie I'll repent before I die 

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye 
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die 
The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye 
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die 

Relax, have a cigar, make yourself at home. 
Hell is full of high court judges, failed saints. 
We've got Cardinals, Archbishops, barristers, certified accountants, music critics, 
They're all here. 
You're not alone, you're never alone. Not here you're not. 
Okay, break's over. 

The less I need the more I get 
Make me chaste but not just yet 
It's a promise or a lie I'll repent before I die 

The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye 
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die 
The minute I saw her face, the second I caught her eye 
The minute I touched the flame I knew it would never die
