Per & Marie:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Marie:
You wear them so well, those innocent eyes
You're puttin' on a wonderful disguise
I want you so bad. I'm pushing my luck
It feels like being hit by a truck
This is no place special. Don't know why I came
If someone has a minute, won't you explain
Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Singing
Marie:
na nana nana na
na nana nana na
Marie:
Being with you, dealing with fire
Oh won't you come around (come out)
come out (today) and play
(I want you so bad)
Answer my calls
Let's spend the night within these walls
This is no place special.
Nothing for the sane (Nothing for the sane)
If someone's got minute, do please explain
Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Singing
Marie:
na nana nana na
na nana nana na
Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain? Tell me. Tell me. Tell me. Tell me
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain? Tell me
Per & Marie:
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Singing
Marie:
na nana nana na
na nana nana na

What am I gonna to do
Per:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited,
a little in pain?
Marie:
The centre of my heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Per:
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Marie:
What am I gonna do now?
Per & Marie:
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

    General CommentHmm... the centre of the heart is the suburb to the brain... her heart and her brain are telling her two different things? I'm not sure, but I love that line that goes 'you wear them so well, those innocent eyes. You're putting on a wonderful disguise.' I'm just not entirely sure how to interpert the song.

    General CommentI think this song is an expression of the conflict between one's rational thoughts and one's emotions. The brain is a person's logical decision-making mechanism, but the heart is in a 'suburb' - it's telling her to do something that's not rational to her brain. But of course she really wants to 'follow her heart' - so what's she going to do? Write a song, of course, sing some 'na na na's. :)

    General CommentYou wear them so well, those innocent eyes
    You're putting on a wonderful disguise.

    I want you so bad, I'm pushing my luck
    It feels like being hit by a truck.

    This is no place special, don't know why I came
    If someone has a minute, won't you explain?

    General Commenti think the song tells that though she dont love or need him,but she finds him irresistible and wants to have sex with this person, hence the line 'What am I gonna do when I get a little excited a little in vain? Tell me,'
