Chloroform The One You Love

Album: Welcoming Home the Astronauts (2001)
  • And if I couldn't attain
    All I need to explain
    Would she even look me in the eye again
    She sits back and ignores
    My need to adore
    Intimidations got me down again
    She's only 18 but such a beautiful dream
    All she needs is some chloroform
    And she'll be mine
    Chloroform the one, the one that you love
    And take her back

    Every once in a while
    I catch a strut and a smile
    Maybe rejection is the high
    That keeps me coming here
    I need some compassion but she's
    Laughing at the nervousness
    I feel whenever she is around
    And I can't see just how real
    Is the charm no I don't mean
    Her no harm despite my heart
    And the challenge while she's lying here

    Chloroform the one, the one that you love
    And take her back

    So just walk on by
    I can see today is like any other day
    But it seems brighter than it was before
    I just can't believe that its
    Not the same no it's not the same
    It will never be the same for me again

    Chloroform the one, the one that you love
    And take her back Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
