lyrics

Judas Lamp

Looking to lose myself
In youthful intensity
I set out on a voyage
In search of heady company

Like a Cornish wrecker
With a deceiving light
You drew me towards danger
One lost and lonely night

I should heed my compass
Instead of making for your light
But I want to feel you wreck me
Every lost and lonely night

In a room like a shipwreck
Shells and chains on the wall
I felt the rhythm of the ocean
In your breath’s rise and falls

You had the dark looks
You lure ships onto rocks
And a terrible frustration
You could never shake off

I should heed my compass
Instead of making for your light
But I want to feel you wreck me
Every lost and lonely night

I should heed my compass
Instead of making for your light
But I want to feel you wreck me
Every lost and lonely


Lyrics by Christina Thomas
