Lyrics
You jumped out of an alley
With surprise in your black widow's eyes
I was prepared to be unprepared
Been preparing for lights

I fell right in love with you
Into a thousand parts I blew
I fell right in love with you

I was caught in a corner
He recoiled from a broken romance
Taking breath after once undead
I had a firm grip on my pants

I fell right in love with you
Through a hundred hearts you flew
I fell right in love with you

Strange that when infatuation calls
We think that we've got real love in our life
It pumps like the pressure in a station hall
As the express train thunders on by

I fell right in love with you
As the blood came blowing through
I fell right in love with you

Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me

I was blown into a blue
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

I rose up to the station
Smelt your scent by the door
You stood waiting so patient
Just one wait, then no more

I fell right in love with you
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me
