There was a girl who lived in London town.
The scenes and sounds, they would only bring her down
She had polkadots and rubies in her dreams,
French fantasies on cinema screens...

And she knew from the finish to the start
It was bound to fall apart
Thanks to Cupid's lazy dart.
Wouldn't it be sweet if she could die from a broken heart?

There was a boy who lived inside his head.
He couldn't face the world, so he turned his back instead.
He couldn't see in front of his eyes;
His fantasies of outlaws had him hypnotised...

And he knew from the finish to the start
It was bound to fall apart
Thanks to Cupid's lazy dart.
Wouldn't it be sweet if he could die from a broken heart?

Oooh...

There was a boy and girl who fell in love:
They both were in love with the stars and sky above,
Cinderella, cigarettes and scenes from the past
Were chasing them too fast for this love to ever last...

And they knew from the finish to the start
It was bound to fall apart
Thanks to Cupid's lazy dart.
Wouldn't it be sweet if they could die from a broken heart?

    General CommentI can't believe no-one's commented on this!!
    It's like new-wave disco; I can't help but dance when I hear it. I love the half child-like fantasy/half about love not working lyrics. Pretty damn cooool.

    General Comment'Oh behold his golden wings
    Oh behold his bronze bow
    And can you hear his silver arrow sing?
    And his gilded feathers glow?'
