Black Sea

from by The Whelps



Got a stain in my head you left last night
And I don't think it was just my cold
You made me feel like I was seventeen again
Your skin is shadow and white gold

From where i'm standing your life is clean
Converse, tight seams and jade green jeans
Comb through your hair like a horses mane
Give me that pleasure before I die.

Are you taking that piece of me?
Back across the sea? Your Black Sea?
Yeah this just wasn't for me. Nah this just wasn't for me.
At least i'm light and free.
Are you taking that piece of me?

You flick your hair as I take the picture
Pinning you in place with the neon dot
Your smile is only for the camera
You're a girl that could make my blood clot

You say you've met over forty - oh lady luck.
Am I just another in this long and lonely line?
How many kissed? How many touched? How many fucked?
How many did you give this time?

Are you taking that piece of me?
Won't you tell me?
Are you taking the piss, mate?
