I've been takin' what you're giving.
Now I'm thinkin' I've been livin'
The fantasy of your sweet smile.
Sad as blue and blue as only,
You could cast the color on me.
Can you see my fire red?

[Chorus]
See'est la vie, see'est la vie, here in my lonely.
See'est la vie, see'est la vie, here in my lonely
Without him.

Boy, you swallow truth like honey,
As you spew your lies upon me.
Sweet and smooth as it goes down.

[Chorus]

Oh, say you, say me, say always, and forever more I'll be your perfect little sugarbride.
Oh, if you could see the strength within a perfect harmony.
Your melody is bringin' me down.

[Chorus]

Boy, you swallow truth like honey.
