Meaningful lyrics in unlikely places

  1. Meaningful lyrics in unlikely places

    I was listenning to a song today and the lyrics really hit home for me. I understood there to be a very moral and meaningful message behind the lyrics, as if the artist was struggling with something and was crying out for release of his temptation. Even though these are not Christian lyrics, the message is wise. Here are the lyrics...see if you can guess the song and artist.

    (hint...if you are unfamiliar with the style of music and therefore have no clue as to the origin of the lyrics, Google is your friend! I'd also like to add, please do not judge the message based on the genre of music nor the artist. Putting the musical style and author aside, one can see the true value of the lyrics)

    I want to love you but I better not touch
    I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
    You're poison running through my veins
    You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

    The last line holds significant value, as I see the "chains" to be marriage.

    Can anyone else quote song lyrics with a great message from an "unlikely" source?
