Lyrics

In my own simple way
I think she wants me, only
She said "come over right away"
But she's just not that way
Her little soul is stolen
See her put on her brand new face

Pull the shades, razor blades, you're so tragic
Hate you so, love you more, so elastic
Things you say, games you play, dirty magic
Aaaaah...

I should know better than
To think I'd reach inside her
It's all a cloudy kind of daze
She's not so sweet, today
She mocks me, I'm no fighter
It all just seems like such a waste

Pull the shades, razor blades, you're so tragic
Hate you so, love you more, so elastic
Things you say, games you play, dirty magic
Aaaaah...

It's oversimplified
It's oversimplified
It's oversimplified

Pull the shades, razor blades, you're so tragic
Hate you so, love you more, so elastic
Things you say, games you play, dirty magic
Aaaaah...
