She's got the time, says she's got time on her side
Running the room
Commanding the late boys' eyes
She runs around, knows all the streets by name
So mysterious, shadows meet James Dean
She's intoxication, soon your favorite drink
Your black dress in disarray
Only dance floor prayers can save
Temperatures rise and I start to move
But it's you that's coursing through my veins
Says she's got hope
Took shelter to the Hollywood list, taking control
Wanted my heart bu I gave her my soul
She's like a Page Davis with a Monroe kiss
Disappeared today, left no trace
But someday I'll know your name
Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
Now I'm dependent, swear I'm clinical
Addicated to those glances, taking chances tonight
I need a fix in those heroin eyes
She's no saint but she'll take you to your knees
Try her boy, but she'll still do what she please
Do you believe in science? She's perfect chemistry
She wanted my love but I gave her the rest of me
Dear Stephen Patrick:
You'll adore me before the night is over
If London's calling don't you dare pick up the phone
Only you entwined
could make this orphan feel at home
Lips that need no introduction, but now waiting for your call, if picture's worth a thousand words
Then your touch is worth them all

    General Comment"Dear Stephen Patrick"

    wtf? That's not even in the song... the only thing close to that I can think of is right at the end where it says "Don't Leave Us In The Dark"

    General Commentthis song is marvelous. but i'm not exactly in love with the way it was posted :( i like it when the chorus repeats.

    i too am rather confused by the "Dear Stephen Patrick" seeing as how it's in the liner but not in the song...

    General Comment"Wanted my heart bu I gave her my soul"
    Amazing. I love that.

    I also was confused about the Stephen patrick thing.
    It's like there being a "(You said 'to write a song about it. So here's your song..)" at the beginning of "Never take friendship personal". I never hear it.. =/

    General Commentwhen he put that thing about you told me to write on song about it so here's your song.. he is actually telling that to the person he wrote it too.. which i believe is the band memeber that left.. he was upset/angry.. whatever about it.. so he told him.. and he said.. here's the song i wrote about it.. never intended for the song

    General CommentHere is my take on the Dear Stephen Patrick thing. Ok everything written before that is about a girl. So I beleive that the song was set so that it was like this Stephen guy is sing this song or wrote all this about this girl. I believe that when it gets to the dear Stephen Pratrick part I beileve that is the girl responed back to what was just written about her. Also one other thing the lead singers name is Stephen Christian. Well many people change their names when they get into spotlight. So maybe his real name was Stephan Patrick instead of Stephan Christian and this was about a real relationship he had with a girl and maybe that dear part was a letter she wrote to him.
