This has got to die
This has got to stop
This has got to lie down
Someone else on top

You can keep me pinned
It's easier to tease
But you can't paint an elephant
Quite as good as she

And she may cry like a baby
And she may drive me Crazy
Cause I'm lately lonely

So why d'you have to lie?
I take it I'm your crutch
The pillow in your pillow case
It's easier to touch

And when you think you've sinned
You fall upon your knees
Living in your picture
You still forget the breeze

And she may rise
If I sing you down
And she may wisely
Cling to the ground
Cause I'm lately horny

So why would she take me
'Cuz I'm horny

This has got to die
This has got to stop
This has got to lie down
Someone else on top

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I love to listen to part one and two back to back, it gives me chills.

    I take it I'm your crutch
    The pillow in your pillow case
    It's easier to touch

    General Commentits obvious that in this part of the song that he's realised she's using him. the initial infatuation has dropped and now he cares about how he's being treated and decided "This has got to die/This has got to stop". its like the golden senario: you love someone and they don't love you back but instead use their power over you for their own gain (mainly because they know you'll have sex with them the moment they click their fingers.)

    can you hear the bitterness as you read this?

    beautiful song... deep felt! woo! yup its cool.

    General CommentThis is by far one of the nicest and saddest songs I've heard Damien Rice play. It doesn't sound like the 1st part and sometimes when he plays it live he plays it along to a few chords of Radiohead's Creep... Very bitter and damn, do I love it so.
