  • This bed is on fire with passionate love
    The neighbors complain about the noises above
    But she only comes when she's on top

    My therapist said not to see you no more
    She said you're like a disease without any cure
    She said I'm so obsessed that I'm becoming a bore, oh no

    Ah, you think you're so pretty

    Caught your hand inside the till
    Slammed your fingers in the door
    Fought with kitchen knives and skewers
    Dressed me up in women's clothes
    Messed around with gender roles
    Line my eyes and call me pretty

    Moved out of the house so you moved next door
    I locked you out, you cut a hole in the wall
    I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone
    You're driving me crazy, when are you coming home?

  • Chris from Germany la bamba or TWIST AND SHOUT ?
  • Michelle from Bracknell I think this song is about Tim and his obsessed girlfriend who is not very nice to him she stalks him and he slams her fingers in the door and she was went mas she screamed at him Tim moved out of the house and she moved next door he locked her out she let her self back in and im his bed
  • Chris from Germany This song sounds exactly like Twist And Shout by The Beatles.
  • Jesse from Madison, WiA version of the video substituted the line "But she only SINGS when she's on top" for "But she only CUMS when she's on top. How lame. I'm SO PROUD to be an American! Standards and Practices dictates that we have to be completely lame - all for everyday stuff that's just totally all in a day's work. Isn't it high time we started accepting certain things as being simply a part of life? What are we - all Christians or something?
  • John from Boston, MaYou see now, you learn something new everyday. From what I understand, Matt wrote this and I'm guessing that he had a bit of inspirational help. Hello Kat!
  • Landon from Winchester, Oh"She only cums when she's on top" Sounds to me like she is pegging him.
  • Duckie from Glendora, CaAccutally this song is about Robin Brown, And james thinking she cheated with my daddy!! Although she is my god mother and she and james are friends
  • Jessie Ann from Purchase, NyI think the album was really good. Low, Low, Low was also another good song on the album. Other great james songs (in general) are "Sit down", "Shes a star", "How was it for you", "Don't wait that long", "Out to get you", "born of frustration"... I could go on and on.. haha
  • Dillon from Windsor, On, Canadathis is an amazing song, a song that is under apreciated: anyone who hasnt heard it, and listens to it loves it. The album Laid wasnt as good as the song. excellent vocals
  • Jessie Ann from Purchase, NyYay! They put up my facts! This is probably my favorite song and James is a terribly underrated band. And yes, the title is in the lyrics. "Laiiiiiiiiiiid" heh.
  • Rizwan from Highland Park, NjThis song is miscategorized. It should not be included in "Songs with titles that are not part of the lyrics", since, towards the end of the song, the singer sings "l-a-a-a-i-i-i-i-i-i-d" twice in falsetto.
