  • She's got the time
    Says she's got time on her side
    Running the room
    Commanding the late boys' eyes

    She runs around
    Knows all the streets by name
    Knows all the streets by name
    So mysterious, shadows meet James Dean
    She's intoxicating, soon your favorite drink

    Your black dress in disarray
    Only dance floor prayers can save
    Temperatures rise and I start to move
    But it's you that's coursing through my veins

    Says she's got hope
    Took shelter to the Hollywood list, taking control
    Wanted my heart but I gave her my soul
    She's like a Paige Davis with a Monroe kiss
    Disappeared today, left no trace
    But someday I'll know your name

    Your black dress in disarray
    Only dance floor prayers can save
    Temperatures rise and I start to move
    But it's you that's coursing through my veins

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, swear I'm clinical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, no, not cynical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    She's no saint, she's no saint
    She's no saint but she'll take you to your knees
    Try her boy but she'll still do what she please
    Do you believe in science? She's perfect chemistry
    She wanted my love but I gave her the rest of me

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, swear I'm clinical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, no, not cynical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    You'll adore me before the night is over
    You'll adore me before the night is over

    If London's calling don't you dare pick up the phone
    Only you entwined could make this orphan feel at home
    Lips that need no introduction but now waiting for your call
    If picture's worth a thousand words then your touch is worth them all

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, swear I'm clinical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
    Now I'm dependent, no, not cynical
    Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    You're my chemical
    Swear I'm clinical
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes

    You're my chemical
    No, not cynical
    I need a fix in those heroin eyes
    [Incomprehensible]

    [Incomprehensible] leave us in the dark
