lyrics

I can dress in your favorite attire
and take a walk on your mile high wire;
I'll do the daredevil deeds you desire --
No, I don't mind being a waste

You could rival a bottle of liquor
that dulls my senses and makes my pulse flicker,
and though I know every sip gets me sicker,
I'm hopelessly hooked on the taste

(Chorus) ('Cause) You're the girl of my dreams --
my cocaine with legs --
'til my poor self esteem's
raised a couple of pegs.

It's a clearly impossible mission
to throw you back in the sea and keep fishin',
so I will stay in this state of submission --
it's better than nothing at all.

It's a terribly tainted endeavor,
and it's a tie I should certainly sever,
but I may walk on your wire forever,
with nothing preventing my fall.
