  • We generate heat
    We generate emotion
    We generate a feeling
    That is better left here
    Than a memory on a wall

    I'd rather cry than forget you

    We generate pain
    We generate suspicion
    We generate a rumour that's sick
    But a rumour that is probably true

    I'd rather die than forget you

    (I won't let my dreams slip away from me)
    I'm talking sex motion
    I'm talking 'bout fashion
    I'm talking 'bout skin games
    I'm talking 'bout secrets

    (And I won't let my heart run away with me)
    I'm talking temptation
    I'm talking 'bout memories
    I'm talking 'bout feelings
    I'm talking 'bout emotion

    We generate lies
    We generate pictures
    We generate a video film
    That I couldn't let my best friend see

    I'd rather lose than forgive you

    We generate shame
    We generate secrets
    We generate a reason for living
    And we generate a reason for not

    I'd rather hurt than forget you

    I can't believe that I'm here
    I can't believe what I've seen
    I can't believe what I'm doing to you
