lyrics

if you were a horse :), I'd buy you some wheels
if you were a fairytale, I'd read you
if you had no bones, I'd give you some bones
if you had no money, I would treat you

if you were a cup, oh, I'd fill you on up
if you were a promise, then I'd keeep you

and if you were blind enough to sing me to sleep
I would surely give you up, my dear

if you were a hat, then you'd be all that
is not even mine to give

if you were a brush, I'd be paint for you
if you were a a cloud, you'd never rain

oh, if you were a toy, I'd get you your boy
who'd wrap you up for Christmas

and when you got tired of the wrong side of things
I would surely give you up, my dear

you taste like candy but you bust me like a boulevard
you look so easy but you drop me like a cannonball
don't you know that nothing's good with nothing here
you taste like candy but you drop me like a cannonball

now if you were a doll, you'd be like us all
if you are anything like I know you
and if you were a cigarette, you'd burn to the end
but not like I would, I'm certain

and if you keep saying, you can't stand my face
go on then, just leave me

you taste like candy but you bust me like a boulevard
you look so easy but you drop me like a cannonball
don't you know that nothing's good with nothing here
you taste like candy but you drop me like a cannonball

Drawing comparison to such imaginary singers and performers such as: Tom Waits on high heels, a more scrupulous and much young ... more
