"Heaven or Las Vegas" as written by Simon Philip Raymonde, Elizabeth Fraser and Robin A. Guthrie....
Pull him away
Jealous so with me
Go there for new
For new things there

Singing of a famous street
I want to love, I've all the wrong glory
But is it Heaven or Las Vegas?
But you're much more brighter than the sun is to me

He's a hustler
It's a role he'll never make suit
Hang on to this
Stay and stay and fail and fail

Pull him away
Jealous so with me
Go there for new
For new things there

Singing of a famous street
I want to love, I've all the wrong glory
But is it Heaven or Las Vegas?
But you're much more brighter than the sun is to me

Reaching this itch in my soul
Is like any good playing card
Must be why I'm thinking of Las Vegas
Why it's more brighter than the sun is to me

Carnivals are bluster loud
I'm dizzy so I go under the 'Big Dipper'
Cum fantasy for a carnival
How fitting before a wedding

Singing of a famous street
I want to love, I've all the wrong glory
But is it Heaven or Las Vegas?
But you're much more brighter than the sun is to me

Reaching this itch in my soul
Is like any good playing card
Must be why I'm thinking of Las Vegas
Why it's more brighter than the sun is to me

Maybe then you will swear
This is hardly personal
I suspect I'm singing to a tune
And still find that beats singing to your sone

    General CommentHyperGlitter-

    I definitely hear "I want to love a boy that won't love me"~

    you're 100% right- they need to amend these lyrics, for sure....

    I love the sound & feel of this song- not as much as Lazy Calm, but a close 2nd....

    Lyric CorrectionCarnivals are bluster loud
    I'm dizzy so i go under the 'big dipper'
    Come fantasy for a carnival
    How fitting before a wedding

    This is what I think it is:
    Paramours are blessed they are
    I'll do some self adore under the 'Big Dipper'
    Come fantasy for a carnival
    How fitting for a wedding day.

    General Commentin the "Maybe there" part, I always thought she said "Baby bear". I like my interpretation better, it's cute.

    General CommentSHe could be singing anything, at it could change all the time anyway.

    Also she would often "mispronounce" certain words - making it even harder: e.g. "brighter than the soon is to me"
