well I
go out looking to be cruel
i need cruelness
to cool this fire in me
stillness it can be a fuel
still i'm pushing through this
cold old comfort of mine

marble skin and winter cold
icy features to behold
you can see them when they walk
through the door
i pour my heat into the mold
but i feel ore instead of gold
and i don't want that base any lower

but how do you do this
the spring and the faun
yeah love comes to you
and then its gone, gone

there's two ways to be a fool now
there's two ways to do this
but take it one step at a time

light captivates you and oh
you're still and warm
mm yeah yeah
but you don't make sense no more
and how do you feel now
and whatcha do when the sun slides down
and tell me do you still want

oh and the spring and the faun
then love come to you
and when its gone, gone

there's two ways to be a fool, now
there's two ways to do this, you take it
one step at
take it one, step at
take it one, take it one step
at at time
