misrepresented
initially you looked like you’d looked like
you’d been sainted
but now I am acquainted
with your dark eyes and dirty mind

was it uncalculated?
you took me by surprise
getting all worked up
under the table

is your age
a good indication?
'cuz you won’t let on to me
what you know or you don’t know

and you’ve got a certain detached glare
and I know what you’re getting around to
maybe you’re already there

you’ve got a certain detached glare
and I know that you’ve gotten around to
maybe you’re already there

but oh you’re wicked
you look so wicked

from the beginning
I made it clear
what I expected
but now I might regret that

'cuz mystery and misery
can sometimes be
a call to action
and can be a source of passion

but oh you’re wicked
you look so wicked

well I can read your eyes
so say I’m the one you like
well I can read your eyes
so say I’m the one you like
I’m the one you like
I’m the one you like
I’m the one you like
all the time

    General Commentonly one comment? jeez.

    i don't really know what to say about it though. with rainer maria, you can't look at just the lyrics to figure out what the song means. most of their songs, like this one, create this feeling when you listen to them and you understand it very well but it's so difficult to articulate to somebody else.

    General CommentOn a plain level I'd say she's falling for a bad guy ;) Can lead to good things but never ends well.
