about

The second single from Della B.

lyrics

You'd been coming round here for the last six months
But you started out over the phone
But when her voice wasn't enough
You started paying for some time alone

You were so sure that she only
Only had eyes
Only for you in a room full of guys
But if you want her love
She names the price

Pale like the white in a man's eyes
What a sight it was to behold you
A ray of light and despite the room's size
You were all that I saw as I walked through
Striking your pale lips, your red dress
All I wanted was someone to talk to
And divulge how my life's a real mess
But I didn't want to have to share you

I didn't think this place was your usual scene
But you kept coming back for more
Bewildering and unusual dreams
Led you right baby to her door

You were so sad and so lonely
And she was kind
And she let you in free a couple of times
But if you want her love
She names the price

Pale like the white in a man's eyes
What a sight it was to behold you
A ray of light and despite the room's size
You were all that I saw as I walked through
Striking your pale lips, your red dress
All I wanted was someone to talk to
And divulge how my life's a real mess
But I didn't want to have to scare you

Someone call the fuzz
She fears for her life
And he grows more desperate every night
And all that he wants is someone to listen
If he has to pay well he don't mind
Someone call the fuzz
The poor girl is frightened
He scares her and there've been times when he's turned violent
And all that he wants is someone to listen
You don't have to talk anymore now
All that he wants is someone to listen
I'll make you listen
I'll make you

Pale like the white in a man's eyes
What a sight it was to behold you
A ray of light and despite the room's size
You were the first thing they saw when they walked through
Striking your pale lips, your red dress
All I wanted was someone to talk to
And divulge how my life's a real mess
But I didn't mean baby to hurt you
