Atom & EV Original inspired by a 1930's movie quote.


Oh you've lost your taste for sugar
And he's lost his taste for sweet.
Without a little dose of the bitter,
It all just feels so incomplete.

So climb right inside that old gin bottle,
And pull the cork in after you.
Oh yeah, that world looks so inviting,
When it's seen through a juniper hue.

Well he used to call you "my darling,"
Yeah just like honey melts on the tongue,
And flowers and bees are so precious.
Now you wish that he'd get stung.

You were snakes sliding through syrup,
And you danced so sinuous and slow.
Now you're birds nesting in a thorn-bush,
And you wait and wait and wait for the winds to blow.
