tarantula lyrics – faithless

deep in the shadows of your deepest secrets
i sleep next to the precepts you hold most dear
your heart is in my province hour upon hour
i shiver when you feel the cold,
everything you say i hear

like a bomb and its fuse,
we bring bright light
but i could be a devil to you
i could bite like a tarantula
right through the skin
and leave my poison dripping
deliciously unsuspecting
protecting you from all harm
except perhaps from these arms
that hold you
