lyrics

She acts surprised
To hear his voice on the telephone
And says "Silly boy, don't ever scare me like that"
She seems so comfortless
When she's on the telephone
And says "October is only two months away"
Then she says "If you need to get away
And ever want to rustle up the dirty bed you've made
Come to Chicago and share a warm bed for a change"

Does she sleepwalk?
Does she need to be held to get to sleep?
Would she wake me up at 3 AM to offer something to drink?
Does she slow down
When it's too much for her weary feet?
Does she stay up thinking of when I'm thinking about her and me?
I'll take a plane because I need to get away from
Running on fumes and bumming friend's spare change
I'll go to Chicago and have a warm meal for a change

I'd never thought of you as others do
"Innocent" and "untainted" never crossed my mind
If you think I'm delusional, that's fine
But if life permitted I'd give you what's left of the best years of my life.
Of my life

She acts surprised
When he hangs up the telephone
And says "Silly boy, you don't know me at all"
She seems so effortlessly
Whimsical and charming and gorgeous and all of the above
But October is just too far away
When she moans like...

And then she says:
Love like you've never been burnt
Work like you don't need the money
And kiss like your tongue is on fire

Love like you've never been burnt
Suck like you don't need the money
Fuck like your body's on fire

Love like you've never been burnt
Suck like you don't need the money
Kiss like your tongue is on fire

Love like you've never been burnt
Work like you don't need the money
Kiss like your tongue is on fire
