I know a movie star
I've got her plastered to my wall
Just like we're dear old friends
Like she already knows me

She's perfect as she seems
Lifts me right out the mezzanine
I finally fell in love
I'd been waiting forever.

CHORUS:

Four, Three, Two One
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down
Stay out I'll stay in
Half dead, half numb
She's enough to make me warm
It's all so safe and sound

Lie back and fast asleep
If you could see what I could see
Drip drop a lovely dream

Goddamn you movie star
Can't you just stay a minute more?
We'd be the best of friends
You could stay here forever.

CHORUS:

Four, Three, Two One
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down
Stay out I'll stay in
Half dead, half numb
She's enough to make me warm
It's all so safe and sound

BRIDGE:

She will be sweet on me
Just like a mystery
It's not so hard to see
If I'm not mistaken
She comes from far away
Gets closer everyday
And all that I can say
She's all I want and all that I live for

CHORUS:

Four, Three, Two One
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down
Stay out I'll stay in
Half dead, half numb
She's enough to make me warm
It's all so safe and sound
