Maybe it's just cheap easy lust with chemicals
We're dirt forever
Maybe we're blessed...

I'll rip your dress, you pull my hair
Now we'll leave together
Maybe you're young
I'll bite your tongue, your lip will bleed
We're trash forever

Maybe you're right
Just for tonight
Your clumsy kiss won't taste so clever
And all I need is a substitute
Maybe in the dark she'll look enough like you

I'll take the shame
Lust to blame
What if we ever meet again?
I'll know your face, not your name...
But we'll know...

Maybe I'll find pleasure tonight with chemicals
I'll hardly miss her
Maybe you wear clothes like she wears
Same coloured hair
I'm sick forever

And all I need is a substitute
Maybe in the dark she'll look enough like you

I'll take the shame
Lust to blame
What if we ever meet again?
I'll know your face, not your name...
But we'll know...

Our eyes were bright
Out of sight
Two strangers caught behind the night
You're the perfect second best

Now every time I see your ghost
Now every time I see your ghost
You're the perfect second best

I'll take the shame
Lust to blame
What if we ever meet again?
I'll know your face, not your name...
But we'll know...

Our eyes were bright
Out of sight
Two strangers caught behind the night
You're the perfect second best

Oh, you're the perfect second best.

    My OpinionSo I think we've all been here before, huh? We see a girl. Any girl. She'll do. It's a one night thing. She might remind you of the girl you really want to be with. It's escapism. You've been knocked back and this girl will do.

    Musically, lyrically, the song is great. Big fan of this band. I went to uni in Sheffield and I can connect with this band. So many clever songs with catchy riffs and thought provoking lyrics. They'll be big. I hope, anyway.
