"PUNISH ME"
(Live at the Temple Bar, Santa Monica, 2007-2008)


Twenty days since I last cried
Empty beds and lonely nights
The muse was gone
Now I understand your ways
The ins and outs the games you play
The wait was long
Now we're laying side by side
Let's get my body back to feeling fine
I'll teach you things that we ain't never tried
I'll learn from you the things that love can't hide
I'll ravish all that rushes to the surface of your skin
I'll down your wine a thousand times and start over again

Punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
Punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
You better rub it good, love
'Cause I don't feel a thing so far...

Across the floor you sip your glass
With tact and skill you hold that ass
Your moves are on
Staring at your sharpened axe
I'll journey through your hell and back
And do it til dawn
Before we take it night by night
Let's get our bodies back to feeling fine
We'll weep the tears that we could never cry
We'll reach for skies that we could never find
I'll ravish all that rushes to the surface of your skin
I'll down your wine a thousand times and start over again

Punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
Punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
You better rub it in good, love
'Cause I don't feel a thing so far...

Rub it in, rub it in, rub it in good, love
Rub it in, rub it in, rub it in good, love
Rub it in, rub it in, rub it in good, love
Rub it in, rub it in, rub it in good, love

But, punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
Punish me
Stick it in my heart
Punish me
Tear your love apart
You better rub it in good, love
'Cause I don't feel a thing so far...
