"A Dangerous Woman Up to a Point" as written by and Daniel Bejar....
A dangerous woman up to a point once said
"As per your wishes, I left you for dead
I left England for the English"

Is it always the one thing or the other with you?
"Forgive them, my lord, they know not what they do!"
"Hey, your friends are fucked
In so far as your friends are an ancient beast bronzed in tar"

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Did I fail to mention there's a sword hanging above you?

"Those who love Zeppelin will soon betray Floyd"
I cast off those couplets in honor of the void
I was here to stay
I would weather the storm
I pictured heaven on earth made of clay, as your form dictated

I went down to the garden with the noblest of intentions
I felt the need to be brief
I stuck a rose between my teeth and had a laugh

The sun set at the speed of light, so I thought I also might leave this
Port of Woe on tall ships made of snow invading the sun

A dangerous woman up to a point once said
I've never read "so-and-so," so why mention him here
In this square where culprits axe me, my dear
Tried to enjoy myself at the Society Ball, really I did
Froze on Union Street, it was springtime,
I was just a kid lost in a map of the stars called "your eyes"

It was a trap
It was a good time
It was hard to realize

I can't win
I can't even walk
Baby, you should talk

Baby, you should hear what you're saying
They said, "don't look back," but I looked back
It was a bore
It was a fucking horror
It was, well, honey, you know quite well what you are

A dangerous woman up to a point once said
"People come, and people go, and people lie nameless in the snow"

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the end of my marriage (and relationship, period) with my ex-wife.

    Have I told you lately that I love you?
    Did I fail to mention there's a sword hanging above you?

    I knew she'd cheated on me, but she didn't know I knew...

    Baby, you should hear what you're saying
    They said - "Don't look back!" but I looked back
    It was a bore
    It was a fucking horror
    It was - well, honey, you know quite well what you are

    My friends all encouraged me to move on without looking back at her, but I looked back at what we used to be and tried to make it work. Turns out they were right - it was a bore, it was a fucking whore, she was a - well, people, you know quite well what she was.

    General CommentOops, that last bit was meant to be more subtle, but there you have it.

    General Commentisnt a song so much better when you know exactly
    what they were feeling when they wrote it?
    I can understand this song perfectly, yet I can never explain it
    or talk about it without someone who understands it too.

    notext, I understand exactly.
