Paraiso - Bloc Party

It was a look that I understood
In another life, maybe I would have been yours
Pictured in white standing by the bar
Like a wrecking ball, like a Japanese weight
It makes the waters rise
In me

How'd you do that thing you do?
This beautiful charmer could be a deceiver too
It's making me do things I mustn't do
My appetite for love is now a hunger thirst

Whoever you are

We spoke of Lagos and Rotterdam
Dancing cheek to cheek, get behind me, Satan
And all my good will is coming loose
Like a ball of yarn, like a bad excuse
It makes the embers glow
In me, it's your mood

How'd you do that thing you do?
This beautiful charmer could be a deceiver too
It's making me do things I mustn't do
My appetite for love is now a hunger thirst

Whoever you are
Whoever you are

I don't believe in coincidence
You were sent this way for me
For it takes two to step this dance
Let us find a quiet place to sit
Into night is all
Let me gaze upon your lashes
Let it be known
That I gave myself completely over
Paraiso
Paraiso
