"Bright Young Thing" as written by and Brian Warner John Lowery....
I wander, wandering all around
This big place I live
She was scared to go outside
Where it once felt so nice to me

Picked up a smoke, then you drag a little
I wanna choke so you won't belittle
Everyone knows that she'll do it over
And over and over and over again

You're pretty, won't you come play with me?
This time I'll be nice
You can't trust what I say to you
I know they're all lies, do you?

And if you ever had to
I would be going strong
What in the world was happening?
Dear, can I be wrong?

Picked up a smoke, then you drag a little
I wanna choke so you won't belittle
Everyone knows that she'll do it over
And over and over and over again

    General CommentThe end reminds me of Soma.

    did no one else realize that it sounds exactly like it?

    General CommentI absolutely love what Albert has done, he's showing that there's more to him than playing in The Strokes, but we all love him for that.
    This song is great, it's got a great drum beat, and it just sounds a beautiful form on quirky when all the instruments come together.
    Go Albert.

    General CommentThat comment made me sound as though I can't write in english.
    The last sentence SHOULD say:
    "... it's got a great drum beat, and it just sounds like a beautiful kind of quirky when all the instruments come together."

    General CommentThe lyrics printed here are actually to the song: "Call an Ambulance" "Bright Young Thing" is another song on the album. Perhaps the link is off or something.

    Love the line:

    You can't trust what I say to you
    I know they're all lies
    Do you

    does it therefore imply a double negative, and he is lying about only telling lies?

    General Commentno, isn't it itunes who screwed up again? "call an amublance" is the one with 'you were only wanting to be friends', track 7, the album cover says so right?
