lyrics

Oh Despair!

Cue violins
And lonely streets
And those silver hills
Where we don't meet
Ah that's the sound of a heart
Saying oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad
Oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad

Oh despair
My trusted friend
It's you and me
Once again
You know the song
E minor comes
In waves of violet
From just one side
Yeah that's the sound of a heart
Saying oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad
Oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad

I crossed my heart
I swear I'm a wreck
I thought we might
Intersect

Now if I'm dark
It's all your fault
A good time was had
By none at all
I'm at your door
I'm in your bed
It comes in stereo
It's in my head
Yeah that's the sound of a heart
That's the sound of a heart
Saying oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad
Oh oh oh…
I want you so…
Bad

I crossed my heart
I'm a wreck
I thought we might
Intersect...

But I was wrong
