Is This What You Wanted

Text písně Is This What You Wanted

You were the promise at dawn,
I was the morning after.
You were Jesus Christ my Lord,
I was the money lender.
You were the sensitive woman,
I was the very reverend Freud.
You were the manual orgasm,
I was the dirty little boy.


And is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?


Is this what you wanted...


You were Marlon Brando,
I was Steve McQueen.
You were K.Y. Jelly,
I was Vaseline.
You were the father of modern medicine,
I was Mr. Clean.
You where the whore and the beast of Babylon,
I was Rin Tin Tin.


And is this what you wanted...
And is this what you wanted...


You got old and wrinkled,
I stayed seventeen.
You lusted after so many,
I lay here with one.
You defied your solitude,
I came through alone.
You said you could never love me,
I undid your gown.


And is this what you wanted...
And is this what you wanted...
I mean is this what you wanted...
That's right, is this what you wanted...
