Lyrics

CYANIDE

I know you’re ambitious;
I’ve known it from the start.
When I gave you three wishes,
But you wanted my heart.

Genie in a bottle,
A slave at your command.
You taught me how to waddle,
Eat crackers from your hand.

I can’t duck the issue;
Swim in some other pond.
I can’t even kiss you –
Not from this far beyond.

Life is tough on lovers;
It’s tough on haters too.
Hubris always hovers
Just a bit out of view.

I wanna know
How you did go.
So please confide
How you did slide
From blushing bride
To snide asides.
So please confide
How you did slide
From blushing bride
To snide asides.

You poured poison in my ear,
Honey dripping from your tongue.
Said I had nothing to fear.
Said, “Only the good die young.”

Yes, your Siren song was sung
In a voice so sweet and clear
That I felt I was among
Choirs of angels drawing near.

Life is tough on lovers;
It’s tough on haters too.
Hubris always hovers
Just a bit out of view.

I wanna know
How you did go.
So please confide
How you did slide
From blushing bride
To snide asides.
So please confide
How you did slide
From blushing bride
To snide asides.

You said, “We shall meet again
In another time or town.”
Funny, but just about then,
I noticed your eyes turned brown.

Not much more that I can say
Since you took my breath away.
There’s not a ghost of a chance
To rekindle our romance.

Life is tough on lovers;
It’s tough on haters too.
Hubris always hovers
Just a bit out of view.

I wanna know
How you did go.
So please confide
How you did slide
From snide asides
To cyanide.
So please confide
How you did slide
From snide asides
To cyanide.
