Everyone loves the pretty girl
'cause they make it easier.
They know how to dress themselves
and play dumb when someone is looking.
And I loved a pretty girl
'cause she made it easier.
She knew how to dress herself
and make love without any feeling.

Don't stop, tell me what you need.
I'm already on my knees.
I need this space,
I'll never leave.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You can't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

Baby, don't come and play with me.
I won't make it easier.
I just lost my self-esteem.
I don't think that I will recover.
'Cause your love is devious
and my hate is cancerous.
Come step in time with me.
I no longer have any feelings.

Don't stop, tell me what you need.
I'm already on my knees.
I need this space,
I need to leave.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You can't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You, you won't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

You can't do a love machine.
You cant break a beauty queen.
You're much safer by yourself,
alone and without any feelings.

Shame on you, now.
Shame on you, $#*&$#.

Don't stop, tell me what you need.
I'm already on my knees.
I need my space,
I need to leave.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You can't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You, you won't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

I like this house.
I like this bed.
I will not move.
I will not move.
You, you won't make me tell the truth.
I will not move.

    General CommentThe "$#*&$#" is a name. John[lead singer] had told me to listen harder for the name, but I gave up after a while.

    I really like the female vocals on this song.

    General Comment"and my hat is cancerous." hehe

    It sounds like.. Estelle. hah. I don't know.

    I don't really like the female vocals, or at least how much louder they seem over John's voice. I don't like the way she says 'not' in the second "I will not move."

    General CommentHaha. I like how his voice sounds at the end of the song; I thought she brought it out in some weird way. And yesss for typos! Sorry about that. Estelle or Michelle? It definitely ends in "-elle"...

    General CommentHer voice has grown on me now, but I still don't like the way she says that one "not."

    General CommentHmmm...

    I always loved her voice. I thought she made a fantastic addition to the song. Her broken sounding harmonics are rapturous. It's almost too much...

    but it isnt.

    And I may be wrong... but it sounds to me like he's saying Crystal... not Estelle, or Michelle however much the end of it may sound 'elle'-ish I think it's just the way he's saying it.

    General Commenti like how in the chorus the girls voice is overpowering johns because you have to like listen harder to hear it and whne you listen harder the song gets into your head better and it seems to mean more. and you memorize every word cause its always playiing in your head. its like brain washing but better because theres no harm done and the song is friggin amazing so yeah. everyone wins.
