"Twilight" as written by and Sune Rose Wagner....
Honey don't kill that last cigarette
I got a long, long ways to go
I've been a-drinking and a-thinking all night long
Still got so much more to show
To you

And when that hand comes searching
Between your thighs
You better play along to the tune
You got nothing to prove
You're a bad little girl
And you know your life is in ruins
So come on

And when the sun retreats
And you got the chills
And your feet are aching to go
You better call on me
Cause I'm dog-gone horny
I'm not your friend but your foe
I've got so much time to please myself
I don't count you in at all
All right

My heart is like a filling station
And it jumped with joy when you pulled in
And you later got caught for speedin'
And this drug-cop says you need him
But ain't no walls in the jailhouse safe enough
To hold you down tonight
I'll be right out here on the other side
Waiting for you by the red twilight
So when Friday comes and you got the chills
And your feet are aching to go
Don't have to call on me
Cause I'm already there
Come on little girl, let's go!

    General CommentThis song is about two individuals in an obviously dysfunctional relationship, but theyre both damaged in a way that makes them perfect for each other. One of those "make- up break- up" couples. I really love the part about "my hearts like a filling station, it jumps for joy when you pull in". I know exactly what Sune's talking about.

    General CommentSex indeed. My fav line "I've got so much time to please myself, I don't count you in at all" and "Im not your friend but your foe" makes it sound like rape. Only the Raveonettes could get away with singing about that kind of shit and make it look cute.

    General CommentI wouldn't say this song's about rape, exactly. I think it's about the bad boy mystique, and how it feeds into a girl's attitudes about herself. "You got nothing to prove/You're a bad little girl/And you know your life is in ruins..." as spoken by the bad boy to the girl - but it's all about the girl, really, the self-destructiveness and the desire to be with someone who won't be kind or dishonest with her. Which I think is what "I don't count you in at all," and "I'm not your friend but your foe" is about: you can trust a selfish person to be selfish sometimes when you can't trust a nice person to actually be nice, deep down.

    My favorite bit is: "So when Friday comes and you got the chills/And your feet are aching to go/Don't have to call on me/Cause I'm already there/Come on little girl, let's go!" because it gives the whole thing an almost mythic quality: the lover/enemy waiting for the girl before she even gives in to wanting him, because (a) he wants her that badly, and/or (b) he's really a sort of reflection of her and her darker self.
