Tigerlily Lyrics

by La Roux

Tonight out on the streets I'm gonna follow you
Tell you all about a scene that you would kill for
You're gonna love what's burning right in front of you
But you won't see it by the light of the sun

Come out Tigerlily, you're caressing me
I'll take you up, I'll turn you on, I'll take your apathy
I wouldn't lie to you blossom, won't you let it go?
I'm gonna give you all you want and don't you know

That you, I know you better than this
I could be here when you call, I'll make you top of the list
And in the crush of the dark I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips

They can sell it all they want but you cannot agree
I don't like the taste of their morality
You'll find your bread and your butter where you fake it
And put your face in the gutter of a snake pit

But our communication is telepathy
What you give is what you get out of us naturally
And we can wait 'til the shadow grows long
And turn the page of a story that has long since found a home

I know you better than this
I could be here when you call, I'll make you top of the list
And in the crush of the dark, I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips

Have you ever felt like you're being followed
Or watched the ones that held your stare?
Turned around to see who's behind you to find there's no one there?

Lurking in the dark, there's someone who breathes you night and day
There's a friend who wants so much more
And if they can't have you they'll never let you walk away

And in the crush of the dark I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
And in the crush of the dark I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips
