lyrics

Take her hand and be prepared for the touch of madness
in her self-assured fingers.
Some call it quirky (and some ain’t so polite), but it’s
par for the course in her little world.
She’ll grin a trifle manic and savagely enquire,
“How dark can you get, Dark Horse?”

Insidious and soft, you find she’s changing your mind
- you’ve lost your morals to her nipping and tucking –
but it’s hard to give a damn
when you’re obsessed with this girl
who’s becoming as addictive as eyebrow plucking.
She’ll fix your delusions of grandeur, Einstein – for
everything is relative. To her.
She’ll prove the theory that you can only be right when
you realise she’s right and you’re wrong.
And when you fall for her (as eventually you will),
she’ll merely ask you,
“What took you so goddamn long?”

It’s time to shed a frontal lobe or two,
leave your inhibitions at the door.
She’s done with love and candlelits –
she’s up for jiving in the Emperor’s New Clothes.
Wake the neighbours with the thunder:
let her spin you round and drag you under.

When you’re lying there together,
it’s your sanity she’s craving:
You’re making love and feeling
like you’re laying crazy paving.
But you came into this world without her
- and that’s how you’re gonna leave it sweetheart –
so never say you love her – she’ll be yellow-paging pest control.
And she’ll be gone faster than you can say, ‘wife’.
She was only rubber chicken soup for the soul.

It’s time to shed a frontal lobe or two,
leave your inhibitions at the door.
She’s done with love and candlelits –
she’s up for jiving in the Emperor’s New Clothes.
Wake the neighbours with the thunder:
let her spin you round and drag you under.
