I first saw you, you had on blue jeans
Your eyes couldn't hide anything
I saw you breathing, oh
I saw you staring out in space

I next saw you, you was at the party
Thought you was a queen, oh, so flirty
I came against

Didn't say excuse, knew what I was doing
We looked very fine, as we were leaving

Like Saint Joan, doing a cool jerk
Oh, I want you, like a kanga roo

    General CommentI can't believe noone has posted on this song! It's one of the saddest, most fractured and beautiful songs ever.

    I love how sparse the song is, and how the feedback and droning guitars turn what should have been a joyous love ode into a frightening and cold-hearted dirge. Hooray for drug addiction and misery!

    General CommentExactly. One of the oddest yet most sentimental love/crush songs ive ever heard.

    General CommentHe rubbed himself off against her arse at a party. LOL.
    I came against
    You didn't say excuse
    Knew what I was doing

    It's the most honest, raw lines of teen angst I have ever heard.
