  • You look so fine
    I want to break your heart
    And give you mine
    You're taking me over

    It's so insane
    You've got me tethered and chained
    I hear your name
    And I'm falling over

    I'm not like all the other girls
    I can't take it like the other girls
    I won't share it like the other girls
    That you used to know

    You look so fine

    Knocked down
    Cried out
    Been down just to find out
    I'm through living for you

    I'm open wide
    I want to take you home
    We're wasting time
    You're the only one for me

    You look so fine
    I'm like the desert tonight
    Leave her behind
    If you want to show me

    I'm not like all the other girls
    I won't take it like the other girls
    I won't fake it like the other girls
    That you used to know

    You're taking me over
    Over and over
    I'm falling over
    Over and over

    Loving me one more time
    Hide inside me tonight
    Do what you want to do
    Just pretend happy end
    Let me know let it show
    Ending with letting go (three times)
    Let's pretend happy end (four times) Writer/s: DOUGLAS ELWIN ERICKSON, SHIRLEY ANN MANSON, STEVE W. MARKER, BRYAN DAVID VIG

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis is the best song I have ever heard. It's haunting and Shirley's voice makes this song unforgettable.
  • Daniel from Rio De Janeiro, BrazilIn me, this song evokes images of an insane relationship, with lovers slashing their wrists, making scenes in public, the typical destructive kind of relationship.
    it's one of their finest songs, a perfect closer for the V2.0 album and, sadly, the last of their 'good material' era. It was released as a single almost 2 years after the album itself. After that, came the James Bond theme (rather weak), and the bland albums "Beautifulgarbage" and "Bleed like me" which had totally lost the spark they had in their first two albums.
  • Jepha from Citra, FlI love this song...it reminds me of "Queer as Folk"...I really miss that show :(
