lyrics

a taste like sweetness, a scent that one could feel
a sight like pretty black orchids showered gently on a spinning wheel
her darkness with its silky touch, would chill but not detract as such
the sparks that reach out from her eyes would better and worse a thousand highs
a thousand highs
a thousand highs

i'm talkin' Tolstoy while she reads magazines
and sits in shadow, i can't help but think that she don't notice me
i'd buy her sweeties, but she's got diabetes
i've given up trying to read the signs, i'm just glad that i'm here and that she don't mind
she don't mind
she read magazines

she read magazines
and she talks police
and she talks release
while i'm trying to talk about the birds and bees

o why o why o why o why o why

a taste like sweetness, a scent that one could feel
a sight like pretty black orchids showered gently on a spinning wheel
her darkness with its silky touch would chill but not detract as such
the sparks that reach out from her eyes would better and worse a thousand highs
a thousand highs, a thousand highs

she reads magazines, yeh.
