She doesn't miss much.
She never stays too long.
She'll read you like the morning paper.
Everybody loves her.
Attentions like a drug.

Should you run across her,
Erase the ideas of
'A moment's all you'll get.'
Or maybe not that.

And if you kiss her, remember it's not love.
Or tell yourself one time til you remember that.

I didn't tell you, because it's not right.
Of how I will always long for you,
I will always wonder what it's like.
If not, I'll put my love to sleep.

We've done a bad thing,
We mustn't tell a soul.
The lines have all been crossed, until they all blur.
Wrestle with your conscience,
At least pretend for her.

If it's really such a bad thing,
Then whys it feel so right.
You know it's so much more than
"We're not supposed to."

Pull your body closer.
Let's kiss, and say goodnight.
But in the morning I'm still gonna want you.

I didn't tell you, because it's not right.
Of how I will always long for you,
I will always wonder what it's like.
If not, I'll put my love to sleep.

I didn't tell you, because it's not right.
Of how I will always long for you,
I will always wonder what it's like.
And then I'll put my love to sleep.

I didn't tell you, because it's not right.
Of how I will always long for you,
I will always wonder what it's like.
If not, I'll put my love to sleep.

I didn't tell you, because it's not right.
Of how I will always long for you,
I will always wonder what it's like.
And then I'll put my love to sleep.

    General CommentIt's some b-sides from the first album. our street team has come to a conclusion that there's possibly more b-sides which will hopefully become an album in the future. if you want to hear them, IM me at 'you euphoria' or send me a message at myspace.com/pineapplepig :]

    General CommentThis song is so moody and brilliant, but when it gets you it hits deep

    It's about Longing for someone and remembering the past with all the mistakes made.

    Beautiful
