"Sappho" as written by Jonathan Samuel Lloyd, James Cratchley, Dan White and Miguel Koch....
Met this girl last night,
She's a real life dancer
The kind that will change your life
She just walked up and sat down,
Took a brand new tiara and lining it on the ground

She said,
Are you healthy?
Do my pheromones make you happy?
How do you tell a child that there's no God up in the sky,
And it's all a lie,
So twisted and bruised
How do you tell a son that his daddy left his mum when she fell in love with a girl like you?

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you


Took a ride in her car,
She had back seat speakers
She took me to her favourite bar.
She kicked off her heels again,
Took a swing at the lampshade
And softly whispered in my ear,

Are you healthy?
Do my pheromones make you happy?
How do you tell a child that there's no God up in the sky,
And it's all a lie,
So twisted and bruised
How do you tell a son that his daddy left his mum when she fell in love with a girl like you?

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you

Are you healthy?
Do my pheromones make you happy?
How do you tell a child that there's no God up in the sky,
And it's all a lie,
So twisted and bruised
How do you tell a son that his daddy left his mum when she fell in love with a girl like you?

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you

Ohhh
A girl like Sappho
A girl like you

    My InterpretationSappho is the name of a Greek poet known for her romantic poems about other women. Seems like the song writer is comparing a girl he met to Sappho in both her charms and her relationships with women. The part about a mom leaving her husband is likely just an example of the power/seduction the woman in the song has over others.
