Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain't no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Penguins don't fly
Crocodile Sunday smile
Really like to fish but don't like superficial people
Shoe store heard it all before
From pearly whites to pearly gates
What do we have to argue 'bout

I like it when we talk about love
I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Leave me all alone before
(Get out the way)
Never did what she was told
(Get out the way)
Seems to play at time of war
(Get out the way)
Less is big and listens more?

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain't no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

    General CommentThe song refers to Weiland's past history of drug use in the chorus. The vocalist told MTV News: "The verse is sort of an 'I Am The Walrus' kind of thing, where it's a bunch of stuff that phonetically sounds good. And then you get to the meat of the idea in the chorus... it's a reference to my ex. It's a real rock-and-roll song that has our own individuality."

    My InterpretationFor me this song is related in some way to "Interstate Love Song", seems like Interstate was about rupture and moving on; and "Between the Lines" about return with the girl and starting over

    General CommentIts actually a pretty good song, you cant compare it to their past works and say its crap STP are moving forward, if you're looking for another plush than yeah you're gonna be disappointed. The lyrics are also wrong

    General CommentI don't get this site... you say feel free to fix the lyrics, but I don't see any way how. I just want to switch out a few apostrophes since "ain't" looks like ain[symbol]t, which is so annoying.

    anyway sweet song, and yeah, obviously it's not like Core... it's supposed to be 60s-ish with good production value. I like it, at any rate.
