Safe Word

from by The If Onlys

lyrics

my hands are tied behind my head
is that a bloodstain on the bed?
i hear the crack of whips and the sweet old sound
of stiletto heels on the ground and i'm gone
oh darlin' i'm gone

ain't no need to be nice
a kindly backhand would suffice
work me up beat me down
quit your pussyfootin' round and take me there
oh me oh my i'm there

the other night you were bitin' hard
in the morning left me scarred
the black eye needed some explaining
but don't get me wrong i ain't complaining
i'm just concerned
just a little concerned

safe word
we're gonna need a new safe word
i ain't so sure i can handle it so hard
safe word
gonna need a new safe word
cause this time it's gone a little too far

hardware and its use
milk it honey for all its juice
sounding sweet good vibrations
need a shower curtain for gold libations
works for me, squirtainly, it's workin' overtime

mary mary be contrary
i don't need no missionary
i find my light in the night
in the dungeon of your delight
and i'm free in these chains
hallelujah i'm free

put your face in my minge
handcuffs leave me unhinged
though i've couched it in comedic terms
i'm starting to feel a little concerned
i'm concerned. legitimately concerned

safe word
we're gonna need a new safe word
i ain't so sure i can handle it so hard
safe word
gonna need a new safe word
cause this time it's gone a little too far
