Sucker love is heaven sent.
You pucker up, our passion's spent.
My hearts a tart, your body's rent.
My body's broken, yours is bent.

Carve your name into my arm.
Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.

Sucker love, a box I choose.
No other box I choose to use.
Another love I would abuse,
No circumstances could excuse.

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Sucker love is known to swing.
Prone to cling and waste these things.
Pucker up for heavens sake.
There's never been so much at stake.

I serve my head up on a plate.
It's only comfort, calling late.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

All alone in space and time.
There's nothing here but what here's here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue.
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he (x4)

    General CommentIt is ok. I think it is more poetic than musical, it probably sounds better with music. The lyrics need a little bit more variation in my opinion. It was kind of repetitive.

    General CommentThis song is DEFINITELY about Doctor Who. Take it from the perspective of someone who does nothing with her life but obsess over Doctor Who and music. The first verse is kind of vague and general but it can still be interpreted as being about the show, seeing as "heaven sent" can refer to how the Doctor is always able to save people like he's a miracle from heaven, as one example. "You pucker up, our passion's spent." Well, the one time he fell in love with a companion they couldn't be together and whenever a companion falls in love with him it never really works out for them, either. "My hearts a tart, your body's rent. My body's broken, yours is bent." I'm not sure if it was just a typo that there's no apostrophe in the word hearts but if that's not a typo, well, being a Time Lord, the Doctor has 2 hearts. As far as "my body's broken, yours is bent," that is probably a reference to how people get injured and killed by aliens a lot in the show, the Doctor often being one of them and sometimes having to regenerate. "Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed" sounds like a reference to how the Doctor sort of turns characters into soldiers in a way by accident, and as Rory once told him, he makes people a danger to themselves because when they should be trying to protect themselves they want to impress him. "Sucker love, a box I choose. No other box I choose to use." Come on. There is nothing that this sounds like it could be about more than the TARDIS. The next part that starts out with "In the shape of things to come..." sounds to me like it's about River Song, his wife. "In the shape of things to come" could be referring to the fact that both are time travelers and always know the future, but I think it's more likely that it's about River and the Doctor having personal timelines that are going in opposite directions and are all mixed up. "Too much poison come undone." Well, that's obvious. When they first met, she poisoned him. He died but she brought him back by giving up all her regenerations. And as for "every me and every you," that is probably a reference to the fact that they're both Time Lords, and Time Lords are a species that can regenerate. That means they can get a whole new body. As far as we know there have been 3 incarnations of River and 11 of the Doctor. "Prone to cling and waste these things" probably refers to how his companions usually end up committing so much to being on the TARDIS with him that they kind of waste and give up their normal lives. "Pucker up for heaven's sake there's never been so much at stake" sound like it refers at first maybe to Rose, because the Doctor lost her when she was trapped in a parallel universe but also because the second time they said goodbye, when he needed to find out what to do with the human version of himself that Donna accidentally created, the human version wanted to spend his life with Rose and she needed to choose the same to help him become less angry and give him a home. She responded by kissing him. "I serve my head up on a plate" well, the Doctor is always willing to sacrifice himself to save everyone. As far as the whole comfort calling late thing, well, much as I hate to say it, he's lost so much and he kind of hates himself and sometimes he talks like he's suicidal or doesn't want to live anymore. "Like the naked leads the blind. I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind. Sucker love I always find, Someone to bruise and leave behind." This whole thing seems to again be referring to how he always makes people really want to come with him because of his vast knowledge of the universe and his offer to see it all but he really only does this because he needs someone to look up to him and love him the way he can't really love himself anymore after what happened with Gallifrey. He feels selfish and considers himself a bad person and his companions are often very hurt by what happens and are left behind when he has no choice. "All alone in space and time. There's nothing here but what here's here's mine. Something borrowed, something blue." Ok well the part about being all alone in space and time is obviously because he really is all alone in space and time. He's very lonely. 'Something borrowed, something blue.' well, it IS from an old rhyme, but that rhyme was used directly in an episode. It again refers to the TARDIS.
