"Suicide Girl" as written by Sarah Martin, Stuart Murdoch, Richard Colburn, Michael Cooke, Christopher Geddes, Stephen Jackson and Bob Kildea....
My friend,
She wants,
To be a suicide girl.
I'll take her picture,
For the whole wide world.
I've known her for a long time,
You could say that I'm a fan,
But I always thought that I would be her man.

My friend,
She wants,
To be the girl of suicide.
She wants a number,
For her radical side.
I know that she is special,
I can see what she has got,
But without her gloves and garnered clothes (?)
She will take them to the world,
Exposed, she gives it all away.

My friend,
She sometimes gets anxiety and stress.
She got a man,
From the NHS.
She proclaims a week of sadness!
She's abstained from telling jokes!
The world will see her poor image, (?)
A butterfly to empathy.
I know that I can do it,
I'm in to light, I'm in to shade.
But let's face the facts,
We ain't goin' back,
When she takes off her clothes we'll never be the same again!

    General Commentthe suicide girls are punk-rock, tatooed pornographic models.

    the feeling i get is that this guy lost his virginity to this girl, always thinking it to be special, only to see that several years later she is considering pornography: "But what I have loved and guarded close/ She’ll take and to the world expose". he's hoping she won't follow through, and deep down, he wants to get back together. until the end of course, "But let’s face the facts/ We ain’t going back/ When she takes off her clothes/ We’ll never be the same again", he realizes they could never actually be what they were.

    it's the story of being broken up and always thinking that perhaps the relationship could happen again. eventually there's a moment where you know it won't... and feels like you're broken up with all over again.

    this sort of thing comes up a lot in B&S songs. reminds me of judy and the dream of horses: "judy, i don't know you/ if you're gonna show me everything".

    General CommentI have no idea what a suicide girl is, but I'm assuming that NHS is the national health service.

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's "emerge" rather than "image"

    The world will see her poor image, (?)
    A butterfly to empathy.

    Like how a caterpillar emerges as a butterfly; don't know what he's saying before emerge though

    Lyric CorrectionMy friend, she wants
    To be a Suicide Girl
    I’ll take her picture
    For the whole wide world
    I’ve known her for a long time
    You could say that I’m a fan
    But I always thought that
    I would be her man.

    My friend, she wants
    To be a girl suicide
    She wants an outlet
    For her radical side
    I know that she is special
    I can see what she has got
    But what I have loved and guarded close
    She’ll take and to the world expose
    She gives it all away

    My friend
    She’s sometimes gets anxiety’n’ stress
    She got a manual
    From the NHS
    She proclaimed a week of sadness!
    Please abstain from telling jokes!
    The world would see a poet emerge
    A butterfly to empathy
    I know that I could do it
    I’m into light, I’m into shade
    But let’s face the facts
    We ain’t going back
    When she takes off her clothes
    We’ll never be the same again
