lyrics

I made mistakes in my life but none of them
Can compare to coming here again
Your room is like a stage, and we’re the performers
Of this passion play

It seems like I forgot my lines again
Your houselights dim, open your red curtains
Your boys are waiting to see
Their beloved belle of the burlesque

Mistress, won’t you undress
All your lies and all your dirty secrets
After all, whips and cuffs
Do require only just a little bit of trust

Do your loyalties lie on their backs like you
Making other plans, jumping from man to man
The boys holler your name like ambulances
They’re not coming to safe you

So you want success? Well here’s what I did
I signed a deal with the devil on my shoulder
You already sold your body
So what harm could a little soul do?

Mistress, won’t you undress
All your lies and all your dirty secrets
After all, whips and cuffs
Do require only just a little bit of trust

You’re a demon doing a devil’s job
What’s wrong, were your hands not dirty enough?
After all, causing pain
Is to you only fun and games

The boys holler your name
They won’t save your life
The boys holler your name
They won’t save your life
The boys holler your name
They won’t save your life
The boys holler your name
They won’t save your life

Mistress, won’t you undress
All your lies and all your dirty secrets
After all, whips and cuffs
Do require only just a little bit of trust

You’re a demon doing a devil’s job
What’s wrong, were your hands not dirty enough?
After all, causing pain
Is to you only fun and games
