Love-Hate Affair (by Mari Kozlowski & Steve Key ©2009)

An affair of the kind
I know I shouldn't choose
You scratch a nasty itch so nice
And leave my spirit bruised

Last call for reason
My money's on the bar
No, I don't want coffee
I've already gone too far

So serve up the order
Pour on the flair
It's the slow intoxication of a love-hate affair

I'd walk a week in shackles
Just for another kiss
Another round of passion
On the rocks with a twist

It's the stark inebriation
A double of despair
A low mortification
That I beg you to prepare

So serve up the order
Pour on the flair
It's the slow intoxication of a love-hate affair

An affair of the kind
I know I shouldn't choose
You scratch a nasty itch so nice
And leave my spirit bruised

An affair of the part
The part always comes loose
My heart is left to wonder why
I crave this abuse

I hear the gossip, I feel the stare
Have pity on the prisoner of a love-hate affair
Have pity on the prisoner of a love-hate affair
