lyrics

Once I knew a girl with a wild eye
She was dark and beautiful
Once I knew a girl with wild heart
It always seemed so full

She led me up the stairs
To a darkened room
And there she left me all alone
An arrow in my mind
Driving me insane and blind
and I don't know which way to turn

Once I knew a girl with a wild song
She wrapped it round my heart
She kept it in a cage with a bowl of milk
Admittedly that wasn't so hard

Up this darkened stair
To this darkened room
Where she left me all alone
An arrow in my mind
Driving me insane and blind
and I don't know which way to turn

I don't know where she's coming from
I don't where she's going to
I should listen to myself
I don't know where it's coming from
I don't where it's going to
I should listen to myself
For we'll never see
All the things would could have seen with love
We'll never know
All the things we could have known with love
We'll never hear
The music that we could've heard with love
Love
Love
Love

Once I knew a girl with a wild soul
She was dark and mysterious
She kept me in a cage with a bowl of milk
Accommodation was luxurious.
