C++ (Love Will Get You Killed)

Album: Low Teens (2016)
  • Girl, what are you scared of?
    All will be lost anyway
    I see no good reason to wait, I will meet you
    There's a light where you go
    There's a light where you go

    Don't let a missed exit haunt you
    There will be no air to breathe
    The helplessness like you would not believe
    I won't blame you
    There's a light where she goes
    All is right where she goes

    Stay if you think we could pull through
    A curse is as strong as there is
    The calm collects what is his

    I gotta plead with your machines
    I'm at the feet of your machines
    Tell me anything at all

    If it's a false alarm, then forget what I said
    If the snake won't bite, then I take it all back
    If there's wine in that bottle, then bring me a glass
    I'll eat crow, it don't taste so bad

    I gotta plead with the machines
    I'm at the feet of your machines
    Tell me anything at all

    The sun is out, out cold
    When everybody gets a universe, they do what they want
    I'm gonna need another universe, I tore mine apart
    Yeah, when everybody gets a universe, they can do what they want
    I tore mine apart, I tore mine apart

    Tried to speak to machines
    Tried to plead with machines
    Pull me from the ledge I hear 'em, they're praying Writer/s: Jordan Taylor Buckley, Keith Michael Buckley, Daniel Travis Davison, Stephen E. Micciche, Andrew John Williams

"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.
