Dresden Dolls – A Night At The Roses lyrics

You should see yourself
When will you grow up
Every knob you twist on that machine is like a crutch

But i was just the fool
You've been waiting for
Who says we can't touch
Ourselves to keep from getting bored?
Nothing else is touching that's for sure

A ring around the roses

I will watch you play
I come here every night
It's just me the bartender the waitress and the lights
Shining on you not getting it right
We clap not for you but for your kind

A ring around the roses
Everybody poses
Threats and then backs down
The second you put clothes on

A ring around the roses
Everybody knows it
I will sing your fears
If you sing my neurosis

You should back out now
Not a night too soon
I'll still be here when the last poor soul has left the room
Standing round just like a good friend should
Smiling as if your songs were good

A ring around the roses
Everybody poses
Threats and then backs down
The second you get clothes on

A ring around the roses
Everybody knows it
I will sing your fears
If you sing my neurosis

And i sat there for hours
Waiting on the curb
Thinking you might like a flower from a pretty girl
A ring around the waitress from the verse
A ring of fire around the roses' door
Put it on before you lose your nerve
Put your hands together and they'll hurt
(repeats five times)
Make your sound that no one's ever heard
(repeats twice)
And i hope we get what we deserve
