"Heartless Romantic" as written by and Murray Lightburn....
I've been a liar and I've been a thief
But now I don't think that is what I want to be
I'll do anything you want any old time
Oh yeah

Don't have money (pockets are empty)
Don't have any looks (I am a dog)
Just borrowed pianos (I'm is coming over)
That I can hardly play (to use what I want to)
I may have a pen somewhere, staff paper too
I'm asking for it

You need some more brandy (got a pack of cigarettes)
You need cocaine (give me more drugs)
You're in self-destruct mode (I'm self-destructing)
Maybe its the pain (and hurting all over)
I don't need anything (Don't need nobody)
I just need you (nobody else)

You and I...
Its all so shameful
You and I...
Its all... its a shame

You're just a loverful.

    General CommentThis was the first Dears song I heard, and I immediately fell in love with their sound. I adore this song.

    General CommentMe too :)

    I love the way he sounds like he's singing down a telephone line. It has such a desperate edge to it.

    General CommentThis too was the first song I ever heard by the Dears and I must say I love it.

    With the lyrics- I'm pretty sure he says 'you need more cocaine' not brandy. I double checked with the song & yeah..
