lyrics

You're sex, you're drugs, you're rock'n'roll,
You're hearts and flowers too.
You're staying up late to argue and debate,
Til a quarter, half past two.
You're burning a bridge and taking us all down to build it up again.
You're freedom and love, and death from above,
You're my lover and my friend.

You're sex, you're drugs, you're rock'n'roll,
You're piercings and tattoos.
You listen to me sleep and watch me breathe til the sun comes up again.
You're here in the room and you're warm like the womb, and you're filling up this space.
You're a firebrand breathing, never coming or leaving,
Your hands I can never replace.

You're sex, you're drugs, you're rock'n'roll,
You're hearts and flowers too.
You're the beautiful things that I see in the sun,
You're the rising of the moon.
You're tasting the pain and dancing naked in the rain,
You're a scholar and a fool.
You're the righteous and the wicked,
You're a love-sick heretic,
You are patient and you're cruel.

You're sex, you're drugs, you're rock and roll,
You're my lover and my friend.
You're sex, you're drugs, you're rock and roll,
My beginning and my end.
