John Heartfield Songs

Hand Over The Flame

×

I don’t want to spoil your party
But I feel like it’s time to go
You’ve been checking out
Every little thing walking through the door

You don’t know what you’ve got
You don’t know what’s real and what is not
You don’t know where to stop

All of us are looking for a lover
We can call our own
You’ve been treating me like a woman
You got out on loan

You think you’ve got me locked
You don’t know what’s real and what is not
You don’t know where to stop

You’ve got your hand over the flame
You’ve got your hand over the flame
You’ve got your hand over the flame

I know your love is like a diamond under glass
I’d like to stay here
But I know that you won’t ask
There was a time when I did not have to wonder
How did that time go under?

I don’t want to make you sorry
But I feel like I can’t resist
Comes another time
You’ll be aching for a love like this

You don’t know what you’ve got
You don’t know what’s real and what is not
You don’t know where to stop

You’ve got your hand over the flame
You’ve got your hand over the flame
