Well, you’ve always been a Sunday girl
But this is the second to last time
that we’re creeping out of the church
You’re hair is rumpled
And my shirt is tangled
They won’t notice the socks under the pews

Well, you’ve always been a Sunday girl
And you’re tempted by a bouquet of roses
And a glass of straight vodka
But I’m tempted by different complexities
I am tempted by lust and comfort
We all need a little lust and comfort

Chorus: Well, I’ve never been above suspicion
And I’ve always been secure
Well, you’ve got me wondering about
What I’ve given up
I’ve given up the innocence
And traded it with temptation
Well I have ruined you with all my broken words
And you’ve ruined me with all your purest thoughts
You’ve ruined me
You’ve ruined me

Well, you’ve always been a Sunday girl
The sheets are crumpled, the air is stale
But the breathing of two people united
Is always new, we’ve become new
And so you’d think we’d have to talk
But there are no words for lure appealed to
And you’d think we’d have to talk

Well, you’ve always been a Sunday girl
You deserve a string of pearls
But I prefer to give beads
And because you’re too virtuous to ask
I will give you the bare minimum
This is the way I will teach the Sunday girl to beg
You need to learn to beg

Chorus: Well, I’ve never been above suspicion
And I’ve always been secure
Well, you’ve got me wondering about
What I’ve given up
I’ve given up the innocence
And traded it with temptation
Well I have ruined you with all my broken words
And you’ve ruined me with all your purest thoughts
You’ve ruined me
You’ve ruined me

Well, you’ve always been a Sunday girl
Not persuaded by shortened answers
You’re not persuaded by anything
But a little thing I like to call cheap wine and old movies
Well then we’ve got ourselves a date
by 11 o’clock we will be murmuring
by 11 o’clock we will be murmuring

Well, you've always been a Sunday girl
So stop getting out of character
'cause I'm not heading anywhere
(anytime soon)
And well you love me
I can tell by the way you kicked me
And sat down hard on your leather chair
I can see how you're trying to act mad
So you must love me
Love me
Love me
Love me
