lyrics

You put some sugar in my coffee and you sweetened up my mouth
Said so many ways you'd be good to me that I did not know about

Up and down I swore, I've met you before, but it could not be true
It was your smile of course, and I wanted more, so I dove deep into you

Bottle blonde, bottle blonde, tell me
Whose side are you really on?
My love for you can't be explained
The things you've done to be someone
Now your real self is almost gone
I'm sure that I never knew your name

Playing Debussy on 103, your piano keys cry rain
Well it's dry outside, throw that window wide, don't play it down the drain

You're my chariot, why you staying put when a wheel's meant to spin
I'll slow it down if you stick around flash that easy grin

Now don't confuse myself with you
What I need with what you do
You know you get the same from me

Bottle blonde, bottle blonde, tell me
Whose side are you really on?
My love for you can't be explained
The things you've done to be someone
Now your real self is almost gone
I'm sure that I never knew your name

I got your number wrong, now that dial tone is ringing in my ear
Don't play it cool, and don't expect a fool - all illusions disappear

You make that face, you ain't entertained, when all my games fall flat
How could I know just where to go if you never draw a map?

Now don't confuse myself with you
What I need with what you do
You know you get the same from me

Bottle blonde, bottle blonde, tell me
Whose side are you really on?
My love for you can't be explained
The things you've done to be someone
Now your real self is almost gone
I'm sure that I never knew your name
