"Poison Prince" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Macdonald....
A poetic genius genius,
Its something I don't see,
Why would a genius be trippin on me?

And there's looking and another ,
Why he can't see is that I'm looking through his eyes,
So many lies behind his eyes.
N tell me stories from your past,
And sing me songs you wrote before.

I tell you this my Poison Prince,
You'll soon be knocking on Heaven's door.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song,
So we can dance the night away.

Who said life was easy,
Who said life was fair,
Who said nobody gived a damn,
And nobody even cared.

The way you're acting now,
Like you left that all behind.
You've given up,
You've given in,
And I'm a sucker of that kind.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song ,
So we can dance the night away.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song ,
So we can dance the night away.

    General CommentIt's no secret that this song's about Pete Doherty and that Amy thinks he's hugely talented but is wasting his life and talent away.

    "And what we all want and what we all crave,i Is an upbeat song so we can dance the night away."

    I think that means that all people care about is that the singer gives them a song that makes them feel good- no matter the cost to that artist.

    That is so poignant for some reason, especially when you consider what turmoil the singer may be going through in his/her life.

    General CommentThis song is about pete doherty.Amy Macdonald thinks of him as an inspiration yet someone who is wasting his talent.I dont share her philosophy on pete doherty as i think he is a wanker!!! but the song is okay.
