Lyrics
Oh, she always used to be the same. She'd be loose with a straight dark facial frame. And now the things that used to turn me off, I find endearing. And they laugh behind the trees as she lies naked in the clearing. I adore her, but I ignore her. See, I know it won't last as I reflect upon my past. But on severance she made no difference. There's things I won't let her know, as we're perfecting our show. I want to own her - I think I'll phone her. I can't explore her if I ignore her. And now the things that used to turn me off, I find endearing. And they laugh behind the trees as she lies naked in the clearing. But she won't beckon - is what I reckon. She may adore me, but she'll ignore me. Put on a show there, we're getting nowhere. She helps my snoring, so it never get's boring. And she always used to be the same. She'd be loose with with a straight dark facial frame. And now the things that used to turn me off, I find endearing. And they laugh behind the trees as she lies naked in the clearing.
