"The Asphalt World" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
I know a girl she walks the asphalt world
She comes to me and I supply her with Ecstasy
Sometimes we ride in a taxi to the ends of the city
Like big stars in the back seat like skeletons ever so pretty
I know a girl she walks the asphalt world
But where does she go?
And what does she do?
And how does she feel when she's next to you?
And who does she love in time honored fur?
Is it me or her?
I know a girl she walks the asphalt world
She's got a friend, they share mascara I pretend
Sometimes they fly from the covers to the winter of the river
For these silent stars of the cinema
It's in the blood stream, it's in the liver
I know a girl, she walks the asphalt felt world

But where does she go?
And what does she do?
And how does she feel when she's next to you?
And who does she love in time-honored fur?
Is it me or is it her?

With ice in her blood
And a Dove in her head
Well how does she feel when she's in your bed?
When you're there in her arms
And there in her legs
Well I'll be in her head

'cause that's where I go
And that's what I do
And that's how it feels when the sex turns cruel
Yes both of us need her, this is the asphalt world

    General CommentThis song is about Brett's girlfriend at the time of writing Dog Man Star, Anick. She had an affair with another woman, and was also a very fiery woman by all accounts. Surely these are Brett's best lyrics? Amazing.
