A Tear in Space (Airlock) Lyrics

[Verse 1: Dave Bayley]
(Love)
Love, do you want love?
Do you want lust?
Say you don't know
Maybe you just like the control, like it all cold
But I like ya, like ya, like you're drugs
Sit in my blood, maybe too much, never enough
I am your dog, I'm on your floor, all that you want
But I like ya, like ya, like you're (Drugs)

[Pre-Chorus 1: Dave Bayley]
You get all worked up
Loving you, but it's not enough
Loving you from the airlock of
Your heart, from airlock one
Fear pulls you from my arms
It's a reckless abandon
One look and it's all gone
All the air from the bottom of my lungs

[Chorus: Dave Bayley]
Water, running down my face
Water, running different ways
Water, like a billion waves
Water, just a tear in space
Water, running down my face
Water, running different ways
Water, like a billion waves
Water, just a tear in space

[Verse 2: Dave Bayley]
Oh, too late, my love
You blew me into star dust
Oh, but I made it, just
Dangling like a thread from you
I climb into your walls
I'm where the spiders go
I'm here, but you aren't sure
What are you waiting for?
Stretch me like leather rope
Make me invisible
Shape me into your form
What are you waiting for?

[Pre-Chorus 2: Dave Bayley]
Hostage, so in love
It's an airless black-chasm
You turn the airlock on
You turn the airlock on
Object disappearance
It's a true phenomenon
Forget me and I'm gone
I'm slipping, no-no-no-no-no

[Chorus: Dave Bayley]
Water, running down my face
Water, running different ways
Water, like a billion waves
Water, just a tear in space
Water, running down my face
Water, running different ways
Water, like a billion waves
Water, just a tear in space
