Dr jekyll Ms hyde

pile on the make up, no let's tone it down 
let's stay here at home, come on paint the town 

let's try to be good, I forgot guess I’m bad 
let's say we’re sorry, I want to stay mad 

better take it easy, let's speed it up 
we should go slowly, let's not be abrupt 

let's live together, I’ll break us apart 
we love each other, let's say I’ve no heart

she played cool and smooth so easily gelled 
we took form where every desire dwelled 

the clock ticked as the midnight hour turned 
thoughts abound my lover’s head that churned 

soon a cold hard prejudice poured down 
borrowed impudence from a battered clown 

three candles lit on the dresser shinning bright 
dancing and swaying on two lovers in the night 

in creeps the Tormentor down low and out of sight 
with a dank hand full of sorrow douses candle light
