Love is quinine

lyrics

When hes up, yeah
well let him know that youre on the way
Same for everyone
Though you did act as you were interested
in the way he moves
Same as everyone
and to each his own
Understand the power of a lie
Pack up and tell me when youre done
Youre face has lost its silver lining
By now it could be anyones

How come you never sent me any note from America?
Cant just carry on
Cant we just jump in from another side of the ocean
New for everyone
No no I think its cooler when you run
and wind up where a flower leads to
Undress and tell me when youre done
Your bodys blue from all the fighting
like petals in a setting sun

He gets delirious
Its when I think 'He lame'
If Im still good at what I do
why is more red than blue now in the flame?
Makeup mirrors are all you truly smile in
and sadly youre not cool enough for lying
Ill go play golf again, hit some thing fourty times
At least something fourty times, to take a hit and feel alive
At least something fourty times
Take a hit, make up a mind

Its not the same for everyone
Pack up, I know what you have done
Youre like a skeleton
You know nothing bout a heart and
so
what?
No
Baby please dont go
Free fall is a part of flying
The birds on the buffalo
eat and help at the same time
Oh oh no, dont you go
Oh oh no, where you wanna go?
On your feet theres no relying
No baby please dont go
and take away whats mine

Your face is a mess from all the fighting
and somehow lost its silver lining
Wish youd do more of the talking
Id better know then what youre thinking
Its not the same without the fighting
not the same without the fighting part
Love is quinine biting hard
Oh my god
