Walk all over me
Even though you can't decide
Look out, (jump back)
You'll be on your own

Hillside, slip and slide
Feel the pain, it's no surprise
Look out, look out
Thorn will be your love

I felt your hair across my skin
I didn't know where to begin
A shallow promise in my ear
No thoughts, no dreams, no wishes, and no fear

The rose is dead, your face (eerie)
No memories of things that once did seem
(To be to me) important too
You give me flowers when it's thorns I give to you

    General CommentYou can't really describe what makes MBV so good. I think that's why so few people comment on them. This is one of my all time fav MBV songs.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite My Bloody Valentine songs.

    of course, it's about sex.

    General CommentI don't know why everyone always assumes that the songs are only about sex. I'm sure a lot of them are but it's not as shallow as that.

    General CommentI wouldn't really call sex shallow but yeah I'm not convinced this song is about it
