Lyrics

“This is a cautionary tale for all strange and surly men desiring to skulk and lurk around the exteriors, the bushes of some young girl’s homestead.”

It’s around midnight
You’ve got a light on this time
Your candles are burning
They light up your thighs
Now I’m just a lonely man misunderstood
I want to possess you like any man would

You’re dancing alone
Only your underwear
I can almost imagine the scent of your hair
I’m heavin’-n-breathin’-n-seethin’
Believin’ I’ll soon be inside
So come to me, baby, move the curtains aside

Move the curtains aside
(There’s a man outside)
Move the curtains aside
(I can feel his eyes)
Move the curtains aside
(There’s a man outside)
I said now come to me, baby, move the curtains aside

It’s around midnight
You’re always on time
The first time you turned up
I was frightened inside
But I need attention like everyone do
Now I’ve come to expect it
And I’m waiting for you

Mama always told me I should be a good girl
And that’s why I’m still alone holding my pearl
When your eyes take my body
My skin comes alive
So come to me, mister
The curtains aside

The curtains aside
(Well I’m coming inside)
The curtains aside
(Oh your eyes they don’t lie)
Oh the curtains aside
(I could die by your side)
So come to me, mister
The curtains aside

You came for me, mister
Now I’m coming for you
I moved the curtains aside
(Is that a knife in my side?)
I like your blood on my thighs
(Is that a knife in my side?)
I’m pushing it deeper inside
(Oh baby WHAT did you do?)

Oh well, you came for me, mister
Now it’s curtains for you

It’s a marvelous night for a murder
