Baby, check yourself
And put your ennui up on the shelf
And let your hair down
Oh, can’t you tell
I’m looking inside

Lady, let it fly
You can’t even look me in the eye
If you want control
You can’t deny
You find it inside
The harder you try
The closer we get to goodbye

Hey, so suit yourself
It ain’t gonna fit nobody else
At least you’ll arrive
At your own hell
In fashionable style

Oh, my aim is true
If I asked you to die for me
Would you?
I just want you to see my point of view
I don’t want you to change
Believe me
I can’t, I can’t get started with you

I was on a ledge
I thought I would fall to certain death
You put out your hand and passed the test
and pulled me inside

I was so impressed
With visions of love and food and sex
But now I’m an uninvited guest
That you don’t wanna lose
The truth is
I can’t, I can’t get started with you
