Sometimes I like to go uptown  Where flashy people flash around 
It's extortionate and I don't care
You can taste the pretence in the air

And I wonder what you wear tonight 
The shiny black dress with the slit at the thigh 
Is this such fantasy that I should think
 Someone like you could love a creep like me

Your body is a weapon, love
And it makes me wanna cry
My body is a temple of doom
 Doomed not to be by your side

I like my job when I do it well
It's freelance work and it pays like hell
But I can get us a place with one bedroom 
Who needs a friend when I got you

Your body is a weapon, love
And it makes me wanna cry
My body is a temple of doom
 Doomed not to be by your side

And I don't come here for the exclusivity 
I just come here for the view
And the minuscule chance of some close proximity
Or an awkward conversation with you
Yeah that'd be cool

Your body is a weapon, love
And it rips me up inside 
My body is a temple of doom
 Doomed not to be
 Doomed not to be by your side

 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I love
 Someone protect me from the one I, one I love
