Hard On For Love Submit Correct Lyrics

It is for she that the cherry bleeds
And that the moon is steeped in milk and blood
That I steal like a robber
From her altar of love

O money lender! O clover gender
I am the fiend hid in her skirts
And it's as hot as hell in here
Coming at her as I am from above

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love hard on for love

Well, I swear I seen that girl before
She looks like she walked straight out of a Book of Leviticus
But they can stone me with stones I don't care
Just as long as I get to kiss those gypsy lips, gypsy lips

My aim is to hit this miss
And I'm moving in
I'm moving in
Coming at her like Lazarus from above

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love, hard on for love

The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want
The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want
But he leadeth me like a lamb to the lips
Of the mouth of the valley of the shadow of death

I am his rod and his staff
I am his sceptre and shaft
And she is Heaven and Hell
At whose gates I ain't been delivered
I'm gonna give them gates a shove

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love, hard on for love

And her breasts rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall

Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall
Her breast rise and fall

And just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Oh you are beautiful! O dove

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love, hard on for love

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love, hard on for love

Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her

Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall

Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall
Her breasts rise and fall

Hard on for love, hard on for love
Hard on for love, hard on for love

Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
