===============================


        I was lying in my bed last night
        staring at a ceiling full of stars
        When it suddenly hit me
        I just have to let you know how I feel

        We live together
        in a photograph of time
        Now I look into your eyes
        and the seas open up to me
        I tell you I love you
        and I always will
        Now I know
        you can't tell me
        I know
        ... you can't tell me

        So I'm left to pick up the hints
        the little symbols of your devotion
        So I'm left to pick up the hints
        the little symbols of your devotion

        And I feel your fist
        and I know it's out of love
        And I feel the whip
        and I know it's out of love
        And I feel your burning eyes
        oh, burning holes, straight through my heart

        It's out of love, ooohhh
        it's out of love

        And I accept and I collect upon my body
        the memories of your devotion
        Now I accept, now I collect upon my body
        the memories of your devotion, ooohhh

        Now I feel your fist
        and I know it's out of love
        And I feel the whip
        and I know it's out of love
        And I feel your burning eyes
        burning holes, straight through my heart

        It's out of love, ooohhh
        it's out of love, oh

        Give me a little serious love
        give me a little fistful of love
        Fistful of love, wow bon bon wow
        Fist, fist, fist
        fistful of love, ooohhh darling, wow wow wow
        You give me a little bit
        give me a little fistful of love
        ooohhh, ooohhh, ooohhh
        Give me, ooohhh, give me
        fistful of love
        Ooohhh, give me a little
        give me a little
        give me fistful of love
        give a little bit, give a little bit of fistful of love
        Ooohhh, ooohhh baby
        give me a little bit of fistful of love

        Ooohhh, little ....

        Give me little, little bit
        give me little, little bit
