Mike Keneally – The Desired Effect Lyrics

It would be my pleasure
To dive into the ocean
To find the buried treasure
And present it all to you

I'll sing away the pain
The chaos and the strain
No love by any measure
Could exceed my love for you

Wash me clean and make me whole when I get wrecked
Kiss my mouth and eyes. I beg you to protect
Give me the desired effect

You fear that the bloom has gone off of the rose
A demon inside of you feeds and it grows
Though you travel afar I am someone who knows that
A part of you's staying with me
For all the acclaim and adoring you've seen

You'll never forsake us
We're building a dream
You'll never betray me and our little Bean
A part of you's staying with me

Wash me clean and make me whole when I get wrecked
Kiss my mouth and eyes. I beg you to protect
Give me the desired effect
Hey
Wait

We'll dance beneath the rain
I'll sing away your pain
Won't let you be insane
I hurt with love for you

Wash me clean and make me whole when I get wrecked
Kiss my mouth and eyes. I beg you to protect
Give me the desired effect
