Scarlette,
did you know that you're the one?
the one that raised the fucking sun.
i missed the train to wait for you,
stood all night to make things right

cross my heart and hope to die
don't recall the reason why

Scarlette,
please don't talk that way.
i can't stand to hear you say:
'think of me when i'm not here,
don't doubt me if i'm insincere.'

cross my heart and hope to die
don't recall the reason why

my head don't hurt no more,
after you slammed it in the door.
you nearly murdered me!
left me lying on the floor

you know i know you know i know i know i know you know you know
this is a lunatic project - this is a lunatic project

Scarlette,
was it meaningless?
scarlette, was i prey?
did you like the way i looked at you
when you walked away?

cross my heart and hope to die
don't recall the reason why.

    General Commentmusically, this song is brilliant. good lyrics as well. i think they are fairly obvious what they are about however. also, i love the part when it goes into "this is a lunatic project"
