Rock children hold your heads up high
In the night while I try
And tell the ballad of Valentine
Michael plays with stars
On the match with the boys, you think you're alone
With the pain that you drain from love
In a car with a girl, promise me she's not your world
Cause Andy you're a star
In nobody's eyes but mine
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Letting me go
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cause I’m Mr Brightside
But little boys have action toys for brains,
I'm living proof it can last a long time,
Now the girls off the street are innocent and sweet,
When they're all in bed,
They got their make-up and dreams of wonderland,
Sprinkled inside their heads,
And soon they will change,
But tonight Hollywood has never seemed so strange
I know if destiny’s kind, I’ve got the rest of my mind.
But my heart, it don’t beat, it don’t beat the way it used to.
And my eyes, they don’t see you no more.
And my lips, they don’t kiss, they don’t kiss the way they used to,
and my eyes don’t recognize you no more.
You sit here in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy
To save you from your old ways...
You play forgiveness...
Watch it now...
Here he comes...
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus...
Talks like a gentleman...
Like you imagined...
I said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus...
But he's more than you'll ever know...
Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could
And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go
