"Venus In Cancer" as written by and Michael Feerick....
Girl in the phone-box
In my home
Right from the first start
In my bones
I haven?t got time
You ask
What you here for?
Take me to the bathroom (back room?)
And open the door

It?s all I care about
And I found
It?s all I hear about

I can?t figure out what
I wanna wait for
I forged all the answers
And now I want more
I won?t step back and watch

What I paid for
Wait until the mask?s off
And take it too far

It's all I care about
And I found
It's all I hear (I'm here?) about

Straight from the camera
In my heart
Forged all the answers
Right from the start
I haven?t got time
You ask
What you here for?
I won't step back and watch
What I paid for

    General CommentACTUAL LYRICS

    Girl in the phone box near to my home
    Right from the first stop into my bones
    I havn’t got time to ask what you’re here for
    Take me to the back room and lock the door

    It’s all I care about
    And I found it’s all I’m here about

    I can’t figure out what I wanna wait for
    I forged all the answers and now I want more
    I wont stand back and watch what I paid for
    Wait until the last move and take it too far

    It’s all I care about
    And I found it’s all I’m here about

    CHORUS
    Straight from the camera into my heart
    Lies for the answers right from the start
    I havn’t got time to ask what you’re here for
    I wont stand back and watch what I paid for

    My InterpretationSounds like he's singing about falling in love (at first sight) with a stripper who gives him lap dances.

    The "phone box" could be one of those glass cages in night clubs. The back room is where he gets to be alone with her. He feels guilty looking at what he "paid for" because he wants to get to know her personally.

    It could be that "it's all I care about" is a reference to physical attraction.

    "Forging the answers" means he's filling in the blanks about her life and how she feels about him. "Wait until the last move and take it too far"... he probably tries to touch her or kiss her at the end of one of her dances. "Straight from the camera" could me "straight from the eyes".

    General CommentI adore this band.

    I have a different spin on the lyrics though. Here is my interpretation:

    Girl in the phone-box
    Into my home
    Right from the first start
    Into my bones
    I haven’t got time
    You ask
    What you here for?
    Take me to the back room
    And lock the door

    It’s all I care about
    And I found
    It’s all I hear about

    I can’t figure out what
    I wanna wait for
    I forged all the answers
    And now I want more
    I wanna step back and watch
    What I paid for
    Wait until the mask’s off
    And take it too far

    Its all I care about
    And I found
    Its all I hear about

    Straight from the camera
    Into my heart
    Let's forge the answers
    Right from the start
    I haven’t got time
    You ask
    What you here for?
    I wanna step back and watch
    What I paid for

    I could be wrong, but that's my interpretation!
