Baby, You Can Hurt Me
___________________________________

I lay naked here before you
On the floor and at your feet
You stand above me, tall and strong
Your words are soft and sweet
I love you and I let you
Feel the vulnerable heat
I lay here naked on the floor
I lay here at your feet

And, baby, you can hurt me
Drive a sword right through my heart
Or you can scream obscenities
And rip my world apart
You can damage every bone
Your foot upon my brow
But I trust you, and I trust you
As you stand above me now

And, yes, you sure could break me
If you chose to do me harm
Still you bend and kiss my eyelid
As you take me in your arms
I’m lying here before you
And I said just what I said
I love you, and I love you,
And you give me love instead

And, baby, you can hurt me
Drive a sword right through my heart
Or you can scream obscenities
And rip my world apart
You can damage every bone
Your foot upon my brow
Yet I trust you, and I trust you,
As I lay before you now
