no more lonely nights lyrics – heads

two love stories

she installed a video camera over her bed in the bedroom
no more lonely nights, in a film she once saw
a girl was f*cked by a dog, so she went to the pet store

but felt stupid and came home with a goldfish in a plastic bag
the fish’s name is superman, he would circle the bowl
world in five minutes

no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
this is two love stories

she goes to bed with a lipstick and a box of chocolate
she read in a book once that chocolate was good both
in you and on you for s*xual pleasure

superman watches glossy-eyed, camera staring mute
blinking encouragingly down at the big bed
where she has fallen asleep, fingers smeared with ‘kissing red’
and melted chocolate, superman and the remote control
still in a cramped grip

no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
two love stories

for your birthday, i’ll give you scissors, shining, silver, sharp
to cut me open and step right in, you know i am
hot enough to keep you warm when winter comes
oh, it would suit you good, it would do you good

you can do it, you’ve done it before
take my milky white and make yourself a coat
cut me open and step right in, i’m sick of being without you
believe me, the pain means nothing

no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
no more lonely nights, no more lonely nights
two love stories

infected by your tongue when kissing, the i.v. love shock
that took me for a ride never ending, i guess i should have
known that needle’d been around, the disease of loving

you spread fast through the blood, i lost everything i had for you
i lost everything i was for you, i used to have a language
i used to have a name, i used to have a name

no more lonely nights, now i have yours
no more lonely nights, snakebite
no more lonely nights, stabbing
no more lonely nights, s*x

i wanted to tell two love stories
one would be the story the other
would be the story about love
