Lyrics[edit | edit source]

with the sugar sickness
you spy the kidnap kid
who kids you to oblivion

it's the perfect hassle
for the perfumed kiss
he makes you miss him more than home

you love him
you love him more than this
you love him
and you cannot, you can't resist

you love him
you love him for yourself
you love him
and no one, no one else

past sidewalk ashes
a last lovers arc
you come apart to intertwine

it was all so simple
as you watched him move
across the darkness in your room

you love him
you love him for yourself
you love him
and no one, no one else

and to the winding vines
the pretty boys dive
and thru the pinhole stars
into the shadow mind

will you lose him then
on some gentle dawn
this boy is here and gone

you love him
you love him for yourself
you love him
and no one, no one else

you love him
you love him more than this
you love him
and you cannot, you can't resist

you love him
