Sweetie'
All partnerships
Start like this.
You don't mind each other's mess,
You quite like each other's stains.
Sweetie, we've all got stains
At this stage of the day and the game.
I had a love with magic powers.
It could do anything:
Kill the hours,
End a bad thing,
Start a good one.
That's a good one.
I had a love with magic powers,
It could do anything:
Kill the hours,
Break a home,
Build a new one,
Break the new one.
We broke the new one.
All partnerships
Start like this.
You love each other's jokes,
You sing each other's names.
She'll never call you those names.
You'd never call her names,
Just sing her name.
I had a love with magic powers.
It could do anything:
kill the hours,
End a bad thing,
Start a good one.
That's a good one.
I had a love with magic powers.
It could do anything:
Kill the hours,
Break a home,
And rip you a new one.
Get ripped
A new one.
I got ripped
A new one.
All partnerships
Start like this.
I don't mind your mess
I love your stains,
Sweetie.
