(bonus points for what the title is riffing on)
A dangerous turn toward the 80’s looms ahead. Well, mostly the 80s…
You know, reading all these lyrics makes me realize that all musicians are psychos. Stalkers and freaks, every last one. Good to know, I guess…
I tried to call you before
But I lost my nerve
I tried my imagination
But I was disturbed
2 Don’t break up with me, I’ll change! I need you!
Baby, I think tonight
We can take what is wrong and make it right
Baby, it's all I know
That you're half of the flesh and blood that makes me whole
3 Was that your ex on the phone? I don’t want you talking to him.
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin'
No one needs you more than I need you
4 umm… psycho much?
I will have you
Yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you
5 Perhaps if you can’t write the next line, you should wait until you can before you write the next line.
I bought a ticket to the world
But now I’ve come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line
When I want the truth to be said
6 This precedes one of the best lines in music history. Ouch!
The tears I cry aren’t tears of pain
They’re only to hide my guilt and shame
I forgive you now I ask the same of you
7 Just. Wow. Funny, but wow.
Like Kurasawa I make mad films
Okay, I don't make films
But if I did they'd have a samurai
8 One of my favorite lyrics ever. I picture all these animals stop motioned in a weird game of red light green light
Animals strike curious poses
9 What?! What am I supposed to do?!
Just remember to always think twice.
Don’t think twice!
Don’t think twice!
10 My apologies for this one – I still like it.
The landlord say your rent is late,
He may have to litigate
11 Um… instead of holding her down, maybe she needs someone to take her to the hospital?
Who's gonna hold you down
When you shake
Who's gonna come around
When you break
I’ve been meaning to tell you
I’ve got this feeling that won’t subside
I look at you and I fantasize
You are mine tonight
Now I’ve got you in my sights
