Your Body Is A Weapon

Album: Glitterbug (2013)
  • Sometimes I like to go uptown
    Where flashy people flash around
    It's extortionate and I don't care
    You can taste the pretence in the air

    And I wonder what you wear tonight
    The shiny black dress with the slit at the thigh
    Is this such fantasy that I should think
    Someone like you could love a creep like me

    Your body is a weapon, love
    And it makes me wanna cry
    My body is a temple of doom
    Doomed not to be by your side

    I like my job when I do it well
    It's freelance work and it pays like hell
    But I can get us a place with one bedroom
    Who needs a friend when I got you

    Your body is a weapon, love
    And it makes me wanna cry
    My body is a temple of doom
    Doomed not to be by your side

    And I don't come here for the exclusivity
    I just come here for the view
    And the minuscule chance of some close proximity
    Or an awkward conversation with you
    Yeah that'd be cool

    Your body is a weapon, love
    And it rips me up inside
    My body is a temple of doom
    Doomed not to be
    Doomed not to be by your side

    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I love
    Someone protect me from the one I, one I love Writer/s: MATTHEW EDWARD MURPHY, DANIEL JOSEPH HAGGIS, TORD OEVERLAND KNUDSEN
