Prefab SproutTalking Scarlet

Carry no bright torches for me... You hide under the eiderdown all you can't sweep underneath the carpet When you cover your neighbour's wife scalding marks appear you're talking scarlet Kid yourself that it's platonic love Best of friends - eyes all smiling - watch them turn to iron filings I will say late one evening while moonstruck beside her I'll break the bonds of friendship one by one. I'll tell her I'm more than some friendly fellow, I will say "how ya doin ? " So casually she never suspects I'm harbouring thoughts of kissing her neck I think my mouth's been drinking my basest thoughts do the thinking You've no shame when scarlet is your name trust in flames When scarlet is your name Yes he's crying in his sleep, yes he's thoroughly miserable for me Losing his looks for me. losing Certain themes keep recurring, boundaries start a blurring I will say late one evening while moonstruck beside her I'll break the bonds of friendship one by one. I'll tell her I'm more than some friendly fellow, I will say "how ya doin ? " So casually she never suspects I'm harbouring thoughts of kissing her neck I think my mouth's been drinking my basest thoughts do the thinking Oh my God someone tell her - I know she's a star, celestial feast In the zoo of my heart she is thrown to the beast, tell her The mouse here beside her won't always be denied her I've no shame, scarlet is my name, trust in flames Scarlet is my name Carry no bright torches for me
