I want your heart shaped lips,lips
Cooler hula hips,
I want to feel my bones on your bones, baby,
I wear my heartache on my sleeve,
I love myself to much to see...

It haunts my dreams...

(It haunts my every dream)

When every boy wants a body to die for,
And every girl who's thin is his rival,
I wish I had a body to die for,
Skinny is sexy,
Big isn't beautiful.

I'm gonna shed me some skin,
Get me real real slim,
I want to feels my bones on your bones,
I am a teenage Drama Queen,
I throw my guts up for self-esteem...

It haunts my dreams...

(It haunts my every dream)

When every boy wants a body to die for,
And every girls who's thin is his rival,
I wish I had a body to die for,
Skinny is sexy,
Big isn't beautiful.

Ooh, ohh ohh...

Every boy wants a body to die for,
And every girl who's thin is his rival,
I wish I had a body to die for...
Skinny is sexy,
Sweet anorexia!
Skinny is sexy,
Big isn't beautiful!

    General CommentWoooo ain't this just such a beautiful song.. simple and with a very important message. Well obviously it is through the eyes of a male anorexic.. very insightful, addresses a lot of the stereotyping out there of a typical anorexic. "Every boy wants a body to die for". This is just an amazing, powerful song. Anorexia is such an important issue and so many people like this guy are made to feel ugly and not beautiful just because of their size. My favourite line here is "I'd throw my guts up for self-esteem", perhaps hinting at bulimia as well then? Lol, well anyways, I just get that so much - it doesn't matter what it's doing to him or how he acheives it, it makes him feel better :-) Basically King Adora rock... too many people hold prejudice against this amazing group just because of the glam image. Maxi is gorgeous and they are such a sexxxxy group that anyone with half a brain can see their songs rock! Ps. also listen to Queen Adreena 'cos they rawk too and KJG is a kitten.

    General Commentwow, this song shows great perspective of an eating disordered *guy*. i don't know about what maggot said, but the song does sound like the state of mind of an anorexic / bulimic. was the singer anorexic? well, if he was, and he got over it (like maggot said), he's one lucky bitch. it's good to be able to put it in a song.

    General CommentThe autobiography of a male anorexcic. This song is not about offending as many fat people as possibly like some people thought.
