Paramour of Despair

Sometimes the hooks are inappropriate

Paramour of Despair

you drive me to distraction
with your slightly parted veil
after half a dozen days
and two dozen broken eggs
i think i know you pretty well

i see the pain behind your eye
it’s just like mine
oh paramour of despair
i see you there

so lets get down to business.
tell me what can this love be
they believe we’re wrong
and history is strong
so baby, dont let them see

but our generation’s like no other
we’re the first with words like these
so when tempers grow like boiling water
let the anger blow away in the steam

i see the pain behind your eye
it’s just like mine
oh my paramour of despair
i see you there

dont let them see, dont let them see
dont let them see, dont let them see
dont let them see, dont let them see
dont let them see, dont let them see
