Bedspring Kiss - Lyrics by Jellyfish


Lyrics
Jimmyhis secrets outthe one he locked inside and denied every word abouthe's guilty so his story claimstwisting in his seat he repeats alone his name
Counting the woesbetween his every linesearchin miles and miles to definejust what it all means
Jimmyas quiet as a church mousepainted every graphic scene but with few detailshis accomplice had made sure of thiswhen she sealed it with a bedspring kissand when her time had come to go
Jimmy washed the bloodstains form her clothesbut with a needle in his veinhe knew he could not explainjust what it all meanscounting the words between his every linesearchin miles and miles to definejust what it all meanskilling his timea monkey in his veinhe knew he could not explainjust what it all meansjust what it all means
