lyrics

Here's a tale of a fatal attraction
Here's a tale of the rarest of prey
I'll pin them down and keep them forever
Clip their wings they can't fly away
You love a thing you keep it in your hand
You love a thing you'd better chain it beside you
You set it free they'll go as fast as they can

I have behaved like a fool
A man made like me can't tame you

And I see you
You're just what I'm looking for

Cupid's bow barbed bloodied and broken
Tour a hole in my heart as wide as the sea
I had no choice but to give up entirely
Snared the bird tame the best they'll never be free

I have behaved like a fool
A man made like me can't tame you

And I see you
You're just what I'm looking for

I have behaved like a fool
A man made like me can't tame you

And I see you
You're just what I'm looking for

A man like me
An animal like you

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
