Electric Six Eye Contact Lyrics

Call me a lover or call me a lion
Call me the minstrel of sighing
With God as my witness, I tried to roll with this
But I just can't stand by your lyin'

You say you wouldn't dare
As far as you're aware
What is fair, is fair
Let's not go there

But I can't be sure of that
Without eye contact
I need a little taste of that
Or else I take it all back

We arrived here alone and we left here together
Like birds of a cardinal feather
Drinks came and drink went but drugs were forever
This contract was doomed to be severed

You said "all was war, in love and fair"
It was more than I could bear
Don't make me go back there!

But before there was all that
We made eye contact
Taking two steps back
And then we breach the contract

We made contact with a higher power
Love growing stronger hour by hour
There was no room for compromise
When you made me stare directly into your eyes
How do I get through this nightmare?
I don't know, don't make me go back there
Because I won't go

I should've stayed in Ohio

And now we play the last game show (But I can't be sure of that)
Without eye contact (the more the feel, the less you know)
I need a little taste of that
Or else I take it all back (I wanna get you high)
But before there was all that
We made eye contact (Tune in directly in your eye)
Taking two steps back (Hey)
And then we breach the contract (Gimme, we're playing this game show)
But I can't be sure of that (You've got to, you've got to)
Without eye contact (Love ya, girl)
I need a little taste of that (Darling, I wanna get you high)
Or else I take it all back
