Her skin is like velvet
Her face cut from stone
Her eyes when she's smiling
Will never reach home
But hear how she sings

Her touch would be tender
Her lips would be warm
But when we're together
I'm always alone
But hear how she sings
But hear how she sings
Hear how she sings

Her skin is like velvet
So I went to her home
Her place like a palace
With things you can't own
Her skin is like velvet
And hear how she sings
Hear how she sings

    General CommentBeautiful cover of the Savoy song. I dont believe that the song is cynical per se, merely about a girl that has no romantic feelings at all towards the guy, a user and well he knows it, but her voice captivates him anyway and he cant help himself. As for the video, that gives it a nice angle. (How the US didnt appriciiate a-ha at time, according to the director..note how the girl wears the us flag)
