Give me a polaroid picture ‘till you fit in my pocket Now paste it into my heart shaped locket Eventually I'll cheat on every man I meet I know I cant help it Buy me a drink and I will tell you my name I'm a rose petal fallen from a mainline train Always there to touch but just out of reach I know you can't help it .......................(?)- in the way you write my name An object of destruction made for Madame Ray Ooh oh, i'll be your apprentice Ooh oh, i'm still in my 20s Eyes from a portrait of one whose love could see no more, You cant keep her captive, on your wall Left New York but drew my outline On a ticket back to london Whitewashed all my boyfriends features Sola rising future pictures Lie behind a camera past the city music hall, Madame Ray will sit me high above you all Left New York but drew my outline On a record sleeve in brooklyn Whitewashed three years of existence Sola rising future pictures Man let go, he couldn't keep her Locks of hair on artist's scissors Traces of unseen love r
ivals Sola rising into pictures I am forever being put away and i am always in reserve (x2) Always in reserve Materials indestructible Forever being put away Taken for a ride, put on the spot The locket must go on I am always in reserve I am forever being put away and i am always in reserve (x4)
