Don't you remember that snowy December
When we went to see Singing In The Rain?
I shouldn't have smuggled in that bottle of gin
'Cause after the film I could barely walk

But darling, don't you know
It's only human to want to kill
A beautiful thing?

When I was seven, summer lasted forever
I used to chase fireflies through the woods
Tidy green lights circling warm August nights
I'd catch them inside a washed-out old jar

I dreamed of the stars
With a jar by my bed
But each morning
My pretty bugs were dead

Oh, darling, don't you see
It's only human to want to kill
A beautiful thing?

We should have been dancing like lovers in a movie
But I fell and cut my head in the snow
I wanted to tell you all the ways that I loved you
But instead I got sick on the train

But darling, don't you know
It's only human to want to kill
A beautiful thing?

But darling, can't you see
It's only human to want to kill
A beautiful thing?
