She ran him over like a bus
But he seemed to feel no pain
Just laid there smiling
Like a flower in the rain
She shrunk his ego down so small
That he didn't even know his name
She knew no other way to love
That's how she played the game
But when he got her in a darkened room
In the still of the afternoon
He became her entire world
And she cried like a little girl
The line between pleasure and pain
Can't be measured by means of the brain
Mere reason alone can never explain
How the heart behaves
She wrapped her claws around him
Like a crab around a rock
It was baby this and baby that
She never let him talk
He couldn't see his shadow
She was always in the light
And if he moved she arched her back
And dug her claws in tight
But when he got her in a darkened room
In the still of the afternoon
He became her entire world
And she cried like a little girl
The line between pleasure and pain
Can't be measured by means of the brain
Mere reason alone can never explain
How the heart behaves
And they said that he'd break
How much more could he take
And just when you thought that he'd kill her
She gave him a kiss, it never missed
And then one day she ran away
With a guy she hardly knew
She left a note that said
I'm bored with me and you
He found another girl himself
A high-heeled hurricane
There was no calm inside her eyes
Just a promise of more of the same
The line between pleasure and pain
Could not be measured by means of the brain
Mere reason alone can never explain
How the heart behaves
That's how the heart behaves
The heart goes boom-boom
Take a listen
