she says too much
when she sleepwalks around
her hips are a warm sarcophagus
she's so sadistic
when she's sobering up
self-destructive and sexy
when the weather's hot

oh and i want her to know
that my heart ain't carved of stone
oh and i want her to know
that my heart is on the road

she fences heartbreak across the border
and builds a better bird house out of palm (?)
she laughs when the main protagonist's family dies
and i wouldn't trust her when she cries at night

oh and i want her to know
that my heart ain't carved of stone
oh and i want her to know
that my heart is on the road

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
God this is way too good.
Gunshot and left in the desert to die
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
God this is way too good.
Gunshot and left in the desert to dry

and i want her to know
that my heart ain't carved of stone
and i want her to know
that my heart ain't carved of bone
and i want her to know
that my heart ain't a bar of soap
and i want her to know
that my heart is just as cold

why do we do
the things that we do
even though we know
we are
why should i say
what's already been said
better
one hundred times before

it's so lovely
when the worlds collide
and the ship spins out
of control
it's so lovely
when the worlds collide
and the ship spins out
of control

Why do we do
the things we do
even though we know
we are
Why should i say
what's already been said
better
by someone else

    General Commentpretty sure its:

    "she's so sadistic when she's sobering up"

    "builds a better bird house out of bone
    she laughs when the main protagonist's family dies
    but i wouldn't trust her when she cries at night"

    "gun shot and left in the desert to die
    ?? (i have no idea either)
    gun shot and left in the desert to dry"

    "why do we do, the things we do
    even though we know, we are

    why should i say, what's already been said
    better, one hundred times before

    it's so lovely when the worlds collide
    and the ship spins out of control
    it's so lovely when the worlds collide
    and the ship spins out of control

    why do we do the things we do
    even though we know we are
    why should i say what's already been said
    better, by someone else."


    but anyway just minor things, great song.

    General Commenti've always thought that it was "she's so sadistic when she's sober enough."
