The cactus where your heart should be
has lovely little flowers
So though it's always pricking me
my ardor never sours
The cactus where your heart once was
has power to rend and flay
I stick because I'm stuck,
because I just can't tear myself away

    General CommentI can't believe I am posting the first comment for such an amazing song. It's about loving somebody that doesn't give a shit about you, and yet you love her/him. It is awesome, so ironic.
