Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, whats it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you
Other evidence has shown that you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone and dont talk about it later

Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mockin' smile says it all
As she records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
Im fighting things I cannot see
I think its called my destiny that I am changing
Marlene on the wall

Well, I walked to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher shop with the sawdust strewn
"Dont give away the goods too soon"
Is what she might have told me

And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As she records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
Im fighting things I cannot see
I think its called my destiny that I am changing
Marlene on the wall

Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As she records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
Im fighting things I cannot see
I think its called my destiny that I am changing
Marlene on the wall

And even if I am in love with you
All this to say, whats it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you
Other evidence has shown that you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone and dont talk about it later

And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As she records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here
But the only one here now is me
Im fighting things I cannot see
I think its called my destiny that I am changing
Changing, changing
Changing, changing

Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As she records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
Im fighting things I cannot see
I think its called my destiny that I am changing
Marlene on the wall
