I've forgotten what it's like, if I ever knew at all I have slept on broken glass and drooped against the wall I hung the phone up many times on angels when they rang Their melodies were sickly sweet like overripe meringues I was born with something missing But I know your lip was made for kissing Ooh baby, when that human music plays I don't know why The wind explodes and rips itself to pieces everywhere It itches in the chimney and it suffocates the air The angels tried to anchor but they never get the chance Their limbs are numb and twisted so they're going to have to dance What scares you most will set you free That's what the angel said to me, he said Ooh baby, when that human music plays I don't know why I had a girl the shape of you, I loved her with my breath But I would hate to admit that romance likes to end in death And darkness is the shore of light, the truth is framed with lies And a girl can smile so sweetly though her mouth is stuffed with flies When you're thin and damp and shoddy Just remember that you're in a body Ooh baby, when that human music plays I don't know why
