Barbie's Cradle – Shiny Red Balloon lyrics
I'm keepin my affair in a book
So this is how a villain feels
Theyre running seasons in my chest
And I'm only to keep them

Maybe its not true
Love on the tv
Just like we imagine it
And its so hard to do
When theres always some distraction
A shiny red balloon
That spoils everything

I'm keepin my affair in a book
Such practical and harmless vice
But I'm feelin it could end up painfully
And the tv should apologize

I'm keepin my affair in a book
My long and lonely compromise
How can you live like that my dear
Well we do

It spoils everything
