Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes
And far from flying high in clear blue skies

And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes
Dial the combination, open the priest hole

Making love to girls in magazines.
Could anybody love him

Will you still hold me tonight?
And show you my weak side
Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone?
And leave me alone?
As you whisper down the phone?
Or would you take me home?
Thought I oughta bare my naked feelings,
I held the blade in trembling hands
I never had the nerve to make the final cut.
"Hello? Listen, I think I've got it. Okay, listen its a HaHa!"
