lyrics

Take down the burgundy curtain
lets start a fire
You know you oughta be working
you got one part truth
and fifteen thousand parts desire

Call attention everybody, it is my turn
It's not my birthday party
but if you don't blow those candles out
I swear this house is gonna burn

Somebody get a cup of ice
somebody call a cab
I gotta get her something nice
so I don't feel so bad

You play you're part honey
I'll play mine
The way you look at me funny
I think you're a dime
Countdown till your hearts on the line
I've got infinite hands
and no sense of time

This house my decadent words
and I was a liar
and now it's pouring out the window
and it rains and it rains and it rains and it rains

I envision everybody
and you discern
hon it gets messy at a party
if you don't blow those candles out
I swear this house is gonna burn

You play you're part honey
I'll play mine
The way you look at me funny
I think you're a dime
Countdown till your hearts on the line
I've got infinite hands
and no sense of time
