i guess i'll take the long way home tonight
i drive as far as i can drive
just escape the fight
i never said you couldn't hate me
i never said you couldn't shake
so don't cry now baby,
cause youre way to good for that.

it's your sweet perfume
the scent of you
i tense my toes and close my eyes
as i whisper to you
it's your sweet perfume
the scent of you
that i oh, no no no

let's let our bodies sleep in today
your bones are much too fragile anyway
your love face your lovely touch
i can't find a bone of love in you

it's your sweet perfume
the scent of you
i tense my toes and close my eyes
as i whisper to you
it's your sweet perfume
the scent of you
that i oh, no no no no

i wanna feel the beat of your selfish heart
as our bodies melt into one in the dark
i wanna hold you close as we fall into the night

i tense my toes and close my eyes
as i whisper to you
it's your sweet perfume
the scent of you
that i oh no, i don't know

i wanna feel the beat of your selfish heart
as our bodies melt into one in the dark
i wanna hold you close as we fall into the night

    General Commentthis song's lyrics win me over.
    "i cant find a bone of love in you"
    that line is amazing.

    i think its about a relationship where things dont work.
    he finds comfort in her, even though he sees all these bad qualities.

    the notion of the "perfume" and "the scent of you" i think relates to smell being the strongest sense that we remember things by.
    so he remembers her best by those things.
    either the good parts or the bad parts of her, im not sure.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone whose relationship either is about to be over, or should be over because of all the problems in it. even though the girl is flawed, he still cares about her and doesn't want to hurt her. maybe even one of the problems is that their relationship is mostly physical ("i can't find a bone of love in you") and not much more. "as our bodies melt into one in the dark" is definitely referring to physical love, and maybe this song is talking about that.

    this reminds me so much of the guy i'm missing right now. he smells so good, and that's one of the things i miss most about being separated from him.
