lyrics

You drink your whisky sour
I take lemon in my tea
Sometimes it takes something hon
To balance out the sweet
That's why I'm tender
But my tenderness has teeth

Sometimes it takes a little pain
To show you how you feel
Just like the taste is what
The spiciness is there to reveal
I know that fire's not a flavor
But the fire is what makes the flavor real

Can you sense the claws in my caress
The bite beneath my kiss
Believe me when I tell you babe
We're better off like this
Because we're both the kind of people
Who need to feel teeth in our tenderness

We're the kind of people who
Need to feel some teeth in our tenderness
