I Trip Through Your Wires
Yeah

She says
She saw me coming ‘round
I was calling out
I was calling out

Still shaking, still in pain
She put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me, honey
I was down and you lifted me, honey

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I’m waiting for you
You, you set my desire, ooo
I trip through your wires

The Edge!

I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
Lips are dry, throat like rust
You give me shelter from the heat and the dust
No more water in the well
No more water, water

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I’m waiting for you, alright
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
Love is all I need, yeah

Thunder
Thunder on the mountain
There’s a rain cloud
In the desert sky
In the distance
She saw me coming ‘round
I was calling out
I was calling out, (your name)
