‘Scorpion’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Ballad

This is a reference to the parable of the scorpion and the frog. I just like telling stories in verse. That’s it. I’m just relaxing. No one is paying me any attention and so I’m just challenging myself. I need to be working on my novel.

Scorpion
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’re in the middle of the river
once again
you look into my eyes with love
and you strike
as we sink into oblivion
you hug me tight and say your sorry

you’re the scorpion of my heart
the scorpion ready to strike
the scorpion, the scorpion
the scorpion, the scorpion

doesn’t seem possible
that this would happen again
the doors would slam and rings go rolling
but our love seems too solid
for the stinger to be felt

we’re too animals under the sheets
when we have to cross the river though
your instincts kick in yet again
I’ll hop anywhere you like
but I can’t bear to die again tonight

you’re the scorpion of my heart
the scorpion ready to strike
the scorpion, the scorpion
the scorpion, the scorpion

[bridge]
the truth will out
I know your lies
but I can’t deny how I feel
when you’re between my thighs

keep expecting a different outcome
say to myself one last time then I’m done
peeking into my fate I know the truth
you’ll strike again with love in your eyes
soon enough the darkness with abide
