Maria Magdalena - Sandra

You take my love,
You want my soul,
I would be crazy to share your life,
Why can't you see what I am?
Sharpen the senses and turn the knife,
Hurt me and you'll understand

I'll never be Maria Magdalena
(You're a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you're a victim of the fight, you need love)
Promise me delight
(You need love)

I'll never be Maria Magdalena
(You're a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you're a victim of the fight, you need love)
Promise me delight
(You need love)

Why must I lie?
Find any prize?
When will you wake up and realize?
I can't surrender to you,
Play for affection and win the prize,
I know those party games too

I'll never be Maria Magdalena
(You're a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you're a victim of the fight, you need love)
Promise me delight
(You need love)
