Bad For Good

The sea is whipping the sky
The sky is whipping the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm
But you'll never hide away from me

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may loose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burning and they're giving off sparks
I wanna wrap myself around you like a winter skin

You know I'm onto your scent
We're near the end of the chase
Take a look out your window, I'll be there in the night
Your love is so close that I can almost taste it

The cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burning and they're giving off sparks
I wanna wrap myself around you like a winter skin

You've been living your life like a girl in a cage
And you whisper when I want you to shout
And I'll never know why you want go on sleeping
When there's nothing left to dream about
But you better remember

If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed
If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed!

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
Never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good

Your eyes are darker then sin
And I've been watching them glow
Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice
And put your foot on the gas let it go

You've been living your life like a girl in a cage
And you whisper when I want you to shout
And I'll never know why you want go on sleeping
When there's nothing left to dream about
But you better remember

If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed
If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed!

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
I'm never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good

For the good of some thrills on a long frigid night
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the kiss let me hold you so tight
For the good of getting outta control
For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of those chills on your spine
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart
For the good of what's yours and what's mine
For the good of believing in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night

For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the hunger that eats at your heart
For the good of getting out of control
For the good of believing in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night

The sea is whipping the sky
The sky is whipping the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm
But you'll never hide away from me

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the northern lights are burning and they're giving off sparks
I wanna wrap myself around you like a winter skin

I know that you can be bad
At least a little while
But if you give me a chance, give me one little chance
And give me all the love that you should
Then instead of being bad for just a little while
I'm gonna make you bad for good
