Something told me it was over (yeah) When I saw you and her talking Something deep down in my soul said, "Cry girl" (cry, cry) When I saw you and that girl, walking now
Ooh, I would rather, I would rather go blind boy Than to see you, walk away from me child, no
Ooh, so you see, I love you so much That I don't want to watch you leave me babe Most of all, I just don't I just don't want to be free no, ooh ooh
I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking Of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah When the reflection in the glass That I held to my lips now baby (yeah, yeah) Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah, ooh
And babe, baby (baby, baby, baby) I'd rather I'd rather be blind boy Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah, ooh Baby, baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I'd rather be blind now

There aren't many songs with a scientist as the main character, but Coldplay's "The Scientist" is one of their biggest hits. The guy in the song is brilliant, but despondent because he's lost his girl after neglecting her for his work.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
