about

Part III, "The Swing", in which our hero is forced to acknowledge the danger she is in.

lyrics

You're gonna give me what I want
Because if you don't
Then who will you turn to
It's better than one
Can't be runnin' 'til I'm done
And I am never fun
Aren't we having fun?
No, this isn't a game
These lies are all the same
Do I have appeal?
How do I make you feel?
Do you feel like you're

Not in the swing of things yet? Well I'll bet
I'll take a swing and you will hope I miss

You're not a friend or foe at all
But when the night falls
I might let you
See how fun it can be
To do all I please
And all I ask is love
Just everlasting love
I'll pull you from above
And down into my world
So twisted and curled
Where feelings are unfurled
And sealed with a kiss
I'll have you living in bliss
Calm down my little miss
Do you feel like you're

Not in the swing of things yet? Well I'll bet
I'll take a swing and you will hope I miss

If I want it, I'll take it
If it hurts, I'll touch it
If it scares you, I'll say it
If it kills you, I'll fake it
If I want it (you gotta be kidding me)
If it hurts (there's no way that this can be)
If it scares you (you've got to listen to me)
If it kills you

Look what you've done to me now; now I'm mad
If you think you're getting away now, we'll just see
I'll tell the world what you think in your head
I'll tell the secrets you keep and those you don't
I'll say you threatened me with my poor heart
I'm always caring for you and this they know
I'm everything that you need, can't you see
I'll say everything but all you say is that you're
Not in the swing of things yet; well I'll bet
I'll take a swing and you will hope I miss

Not in the swing of things yet? Well I'll bet
I'll take a swing and you will hope I miss
