REVENGE

Writers: Holly Knight/Kiyomi McCloskey

 

Revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

Revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

I heard a rumor today that you were coming my way

I felt the sickness the shame then the anger
You saw my faith in you bend

it was a means to your end
And when you said I was blind I believed you
And when you laughed as I bled I swore that there would be death
I guess that revenge it ain’t such a sweet thing

I thought you knew you were my best friend.
I thought our trust would stick it out to the end
You took my love for granted
You said I wasn’t worth it
You said I was so lovesick
Looks like I’m coming after you
Revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

revenge it ain’t a sweet thing
Revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

For everything that you took

from that last hostile look

I knew my mission was made with a mark

I watched your face as you slept, those vicious secrets I kept

You showed your colors now it’s hard to hide

So look who’s laughing loud now

I got that feeling of power

I guess that revenge it ain’t such a sweet thing
Let me show you something that you don’t know about yourself

This burning feeling is about to get hot like hell

The consequence of what you did about to be revealed

This deal that you made with me is about to be sealed

 

I thought you knew you were my best friend.
I thought our trust would stick it out to the end
You took my love for granted
You said I wasn’t worth it
You said I was so lovesick
Looks like I’m coming after you
Revenge it ain’t a sweet thing

Full Title:Lessons From the Late Night

‘Hunter Valentine is an all-girl-out-with-it-lesbian-band-from-Canada that plays rock. (They were on the show, The Real L Word). Working with Kiyomi was fun and she’s very professional. She has some balls as a singer, and although I haven’t seen them live yet, I imagine she’s the same way, only moreso.’ – HK
