  • Lovely disguise, read between the lines
    You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
    Three, four you sell what you bought
    And there ain't no magic pen to get back what you lost

    I like it when we talk about love

    I like it when we talk about love
    You always were my favorite drug
    Even when we used to take drugs

    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take

    Penguins don't fly
    Crocodile Sunday smile
    Really like to fish but don't like superficial people
    Shoe store heard it all before
    From pearly whites to pearly gates
    What do we have to argue 'bout

    I like it when we talk about love
    I like it when we talk about love
    You always were my favorite drug
    Even when we used to take drugs

    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take

    Leave me all alone before
    (Get out the way)
    Never did what she was told
    (Get out the way)
    Seems to play at time of war
    (Get out the way)
    Less is big and listens more?

    Lovely disguise, read between the lines
    You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
    Three, four you sell what you bought
    And there ain't no magic pen to get back what you lost

    I like it when we talk about love

    I like it when we talk about love
    You always were my favorite drug
    Even when we used to take drugs

    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take
    Even when we used to take Writer/s: Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Scott Richard Weiland

  • Sarah from Yuba City, CaAhh this is the best comeback single these guys could've possibly made! Yes, the bridge is similar to "Stay Away" but im not sure if that was even intentional. Maybe a tribute of some weird sort? Either way, this song is just as good as anything STP has done in the past. (PS I saw them in Reno a few months back...very well done. Great show.) :)
