Hello
Get out the abacus and count this
A funny story with a dark twist
The target so big that you can't miss
Me

Compulsive
And every page I turn I want more
I never know the next thing in store
'Cos you excite me like a locked door
Does

Like a limpet
I want to take your voice and drink it
There doesn't seem to be a limit
To all the things that I could do

I know how I want it to go
I know how I want it to be
Don't make me think before I speak
Or make me hold my horses

Hold tight
We saddled up if you can ride light
If you just think it then you'll be fine
Fingers crossed that it's the right time
This time
Through a fat swamp
We can visit for a fun romp
I really want to do the high jump
Taking a risk will do us all some good

I know how I want it to go
I know how I want it to be
Don't make me think before I speak
Or make me hold my horses

I've got my eye on the prize
(Look at my eyes)
My beady eyes are alight
(They're alight)
And though I don't know what comes next
I will not hold my horses

Hello
Get out the abacus and count me
A funny feeling says I won't be
The target so big that you can't miss
Me

I know how I want it to go
(I want it to go)
I know how I want it to be
(I want it to)
Don't make me think before I speak
Or make me hold my horses

I've got my eye on the prize
(Look at my eyes)
My beady eyes are alight
(They're alight)
And though I don't know what comes next
I will not hold my horses

I know what you're thinking
I know how you see me
Although it hurts
You're probably right

    General Commenta great song! thanks for posting this because i really couldn't understand most of what she was saying. i think she wants to start a relationship with someone that thinks she is moving too fast. she knows what she wants and is all for taking risks to get it.

    General CommentThis song is just awsome. This was the song that got me hooked on Psapp, and I'm glad it did!

    General CommentI think its about a woman who's in control and has a controlling, organized man that tries to tame her but likes things that are out of control and that are not predictable. (cos you excite me like a lock door does), still she knows what she wants.

    I need to meet more chicks like that.

    this is about someone who is about to make a really important decision and people are asking her if she's sure, and people think she's being irrational, but she refuses to change her mind because she's knows what she wants and she's not going to second guess herself.
