Dating a porn star, it isn't all roses
She leaves you home on a Saturday night
You can go crazy with thoughts and supposes
Lose the thin thread between what's wrong and right

So Starlight won't you kiss me
For I have missed you so
Just like the others
And all of their brothers
I've come to see the show

The strip club crowd looks like a sad constellation
But I hold your heart like the sky holds the moon
I'm cast down outside 'cause they don't allow boyfriends
Star won't you tell me you're coming home soon

Playing cards with the bouncer to let me back in
I hear them announce her and I hear her begin
Sometimes I think that I was born to lose
My money, my shirt, my socks and my shoes

Dating a porn star, it's bad news brother
You wonder how long 'til the coming of day
And wait by the sparkly curtains of heaven
The stars look so pretty from so far away

    General CommentWow! I can SO relate to this song.
    I can't understand why the song is called "Dating a Porn Star" when clearly it's about a stripper.

    I'm in a relationship with a stripper.
    It's not easy. i don't care how much self confidence you have. Knowing that your girlfriend goes to work and takes her clothes off in front of horny, drunk men, who try to grab her all over, will eventually fuck with your mind one way or another.
    I trust her, but still sometimes, when I'm laying in bed, trying to fall asleep, while she's at work, thoughts of fear and doubt creep up on me, like a thief in the night and its poison for the brain.

    "She leaves you home on a Saturday night
    You can go crazy with thoughts and supposes
    Lose the thin thread between what's wrong and right"

    She told me she hates her job and wants to quit, but it's gonna take a year before we've saved up the money, so she can do that and find some other job. Until than I guess I just have to arm myself with patience and hope she loves me as much as I love her... Maybe I'm being naive in trusting her, but if I didn't I couldn't be this relationship at all. Only time will tell if I'm waisting my time...

    General CommentI don't think so. The last few lines are kind of a hit out at the culture of objectification. "The stars look so pretty from so far away". Like, these women are pretty, but that's not who they really are.

    General Commenttheshambler: I think there's also a bit of despair in the third verse:

    Sometimes I think that I was born to lose
    My money, my shirt, my socks and my shoes

    The boyfriend is not allowed in and is playing cards to get in but he loses everything. He's willing to risk everything just to see his star's show. So even though he's giving a warning he still seems unable to stay away, sort of a moth to the flame situation.

    General Commenti love this song so much for some reason.

    i think it's pretty obvious what it's about. word for word, basically.
