Put It On Me testo

She eats nectarines with honey
spends her daddy’s money so easy
she cuts cherry pie
while she looks you in the eye
so easy
the innocent naiveté of
hairless cheek
the politics of generosity
make me weak

there’s an assassin out to get me
and they claim that
she’s never missed
the one with an ex-lover
whom she claims
to have never kissed
we turned at twenty paces
for love is a duel
and we stood still as stone
i can’t imagine that
this is in the best interest
of flesh and bone

i’ve been living in the city
for much too long
there’s a neon sign in my mind
flashing right and wrong
i can’t afford your company
i spent my money buying time
i was lost out in the desert while
you were busy swimming in wine

you put it on me
then left me lonely
