I was a stranger in this place until you chose me and let me in
Now I see danger in your face you are the prize that I can't win

Desdemona I said it's not over
Won't you please listen, listen to me
You will be fine, you will be mine
Be a good girl, won't you be

I leave your bedside in the night and when I leave he walks in
I may be a fool, but I am right it is your faith that I can't win

Desdemona you'll see me tomorrow
Do I believe you or will I just grieve
Alone tonight I hope I am right
Be a good girl, won't you be

You've spent a lifetime in this place and when I came you let me in
Your eyes they follow his face I stand beside you but I can't win

I am a danger in your eyes your love is something I could never keep
Words you gave me, only lies he lies beside you when you sleep

Desdemona you'll see me tomorrow
Do I believe you or will I just grieve
Alone tonight I hope I am right
Be a good girl, won't you be

Your hand in mine has grown cold it was the a prize I could never win
My hands on your neck were too bold all that is left is hell and sin

Desdemona I said it's not over
Won't you please listen, listen to me
You will be fine, you will be mine
Be a good girl, won't you be
Desdemona night time is over
Lie down beside you, let myself bleed
You were fine, you were all mine
Be a good girl won't you be
