True Believer Lyrics

by Aimee Mann

Nightly, you retrace your steps again
To return to the scene of the crime
It's uncanny how you hover in the air
Of the wreckage that you left behind

I want you but you're a poltergeist
I want you but, baby, the price is high
I want you and now I've said it twice
So Mary, dim the lights

Really, when you come into the room
It's not helping me, seeing you down
It's not easy in this phosphorescent gloom
Telling waking dreams apart anyhow

I want you but you're a poltergeist
I want you but, baby, the price is high
I want you and now I've said it twice
So Mary, dim the lights

Cups and saucers crashing in
But Houdini applauds the gag again
There no one's a true believer

I want you but you're a poltergeist
I want you but, baby, the price is high
I want you and now I've said it twice
So Mary, dim the lights

Cups and saucers crashing in
But Houdini applauds the gag again
