panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
as a spark is igniting
it takes only a slight flicker,
a tiny glow of a flame
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
maybe this time its real?
maybe this time it will be;
a deep seeded passion
that could set me free?
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
but what if its true love
thats burn is everlasting
like hot coals
that can never be quenched?
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
to the safety of your shell
and inner shelter,
take cover!
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
should you remain
you will be hurt
and your life will be further
buried in dirt.
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
not yet ready for this ride
so go on,
hurry up and hide!
and don’t you let anybody else inside.
 
panic sets in
retreat! retreat!
i repeat,
retreat!
 
panic sets in
and decides to stay.
