Divine Fits – Lyrics

A Thing Called Divine Fits

My Love is Real
Flaggin a Ride
What Gets You Alone
Would That Not Be Nice
The Salton Sea
Baby Get Worse
Civilian Stripes
For Your Heart
Shivers
Like Ice Cream
Neopolitans



My Love is Real

I was stuck on a pin and we were equally nervous,
I could not get through.
So where is the chain that will keep us together
This much is true
My Love is real
Until it stops

Don’t you wanna go down
like old Mayakovsky,
in a sea of blue.
And if I was the king,
she’s the knife in the water
There’s so much to loose
When my love is real.
Until it stops

So throw up your hands for south California,
and not a lot to loose
I would not sleep until I tried every way
to bring your little black heart back
Love is real
Until it stops



Flaggin a Ride

I know you see me, I’m just like you
I know you see me, i’m just like you
I’m just trying to make my way
I gotta feelin that you can relate
And don’t talk much, shoot straight

Can’t you see me wavin I’m flaggin a ride
Can’t you see me wavin I’m flaggin a ride

Maybe you been caught out once before
Maybe you’re an angel disguised
Maybe you got room to spare
Maybe you’re the one that don’t just stare

Can’t you see me wavin I’m flaggin a ride
Glad to see you comin I got nothing to hide
Cos I’m tryin to get to providence
I lost my way
If I don’t make it there
There’ll be hell to pay
Can’t you see me wavin I’m flaggin a ride
Can’t you see me wavin I’m flaggin a ride

Maybe you’ve been caught out once before
Trying to get to Providence
I know what for
But I’m out in the cold



What Gets You Alone

Jessica please
Take out insurance on me
and when you leave
Don’t forget to keep yourself
keep yourself alright

Cause down at the club
They’re playing number after number
So nice
Feels better
Keeps you up all night
Keeps you up all night

But I feel alone
Hanging in the elevator
Take me home
Cause my love is my love is lost
It is lost

I’ll never never know
What gets you when you’re alone
I’ll never never know
What gets you alone

So out on the street
I feel it coming
Felt it walk up to me
and yes it moved me
I felt alone, hanging in the elevator
Take me home cause my love is my love is strange,
strange

My my my my my my my heart’s a mess
Heart’s a mess
But it moved me
I let it fall

I’ll never never never know
What gets you alone
What gets you when you’re alone
I’ll never never never know



Would That Not Be Nice

At night I wonder, how do I swing this?
I’m gonna be up for a long while
cause I gotta know it
Know it tonight
Cause if I did, would that not be nice?

I wish that I was
in Minneapolis
Like Barbarita and Cleopatra
up on her throne
Come Cleopatra
come come back home
I’ll be here waiting with basmati rice
And can you tell me now, would that not be nice?

You’re so destructive
Alien and deranged
Sometimes I wish that you were just strange
I must admit it, that sounds alright
And if you were, would that not be nice?

You got a gothic, Candelabra
from california
And if you light it
You set the room up with flickering light
And if you did, would that not be nice?
Would that not be nice?



The Salton Sea

Slow
Slow
In full color
MMMM slow
As I look out at the Salton Sea
It calls to me
Johnny came back with a better machine
And he looked real good, got a better machine
Johnny came back with a better machine
And he looked real good, got a better machine

Slow
Slow
In full color
MMM slow
As I looked out at the Salton Sea
It sang to me
And so I listened to the Salton Sea
It sang to me



Baby Get Worse

I got a picture in black and white
I put the picture across my eyes
I’m gonna hold it up
up to the light
and I’ll get mine
Baby get worse

So shut the door the neon sky
The operator of something wild
You got your good thing
And I’ll get mind
Before baby get worse

Can’t you hear me calling
Calling outside
I block the comm
I was underwater
underwater

My heart was beating in in and outta time
She can really get me gone

So grab your coat
Put out your light
We hit the city but the city it don’t mind
Made it alright
Baby get worse

I’ll be the operator
I’ll be the spy
I’m taking pictures until they turn out right
Then say goodnight

My heart was beating in in and outta time
She can really get me gone
I never know



Civilian Stripes

Go and do what you want
you know you can always leave
when the curtain drops
and you get it right, right, right
So is it good
Is it really good
The quite life
Early in the night
You went walking in your new civilian stripes

So is it good
is it really good
The quite life
early in the night
You went walking in your new civilian strops

So is it good
is it really good
uh huh
Is it good
Is it really good
The quite life
You were looking fine

When you went walking in your new civilian stripes
You went walking in your new civilian stripes
You went walking in your new civilian stripes



For Your Heart

Oh my girl
don’t believe me
She can move
she can remove me
and get me gone

Like satellites
She’s all right
Yeah

You better tell me why
You keep me searching in the dark
For your heart

Up all night
I walk the ceiling
and this hear is deceiving
In the dark you’re made new
But is it you
Yeah

You better tell me why
You better tell me why
You keep me searching in the dark
For your heart

So come on please believe me
Give me white, give me no feelings
I would stand outside your door
I’m your man
Yeah

You better tell me why
You better tell me why
You keep me searching in the dark
For your heart



Shivers

I’ve been contemplating suicide
But it really doesn’t suit my style
So I guess I’ll just act bored instead
And contain the blood I woulda shed

She makes me feel so ill at ease
My heart is really on its knees
But I wear a poker face so well
That even mother couldn’t tell

And my baby’s so vain
she’s almost a mirror
And the sound of her name
Sends a permanent shiver
down my spine

I keep her photo against my heart
Cause in my life she plays a starring part
All alcohol and cigarettes
There is no room for cheap regret
She makes me feel so ill at ease
My heart is really on its knees
But I wear a poker face so well
That even mother couldn’t tell

And my baby’s so vain she’s almost a mirror
And the sound of her name
Sends a permanent shiver
down my spine



Like Ice Cream

Whisper it to me the way you want me
I don’t got no feeling no more
Read it to me and tell me rights
I don’t think I know no more
You’re talking soul power
and I’m right there too

She waited for me
Like ice cream
I coulda took all summer

Cafe dancer
She shows you her wounds
and you think you know her well
Can’t think a one place that you rather be
Ain’t nothing you need tonight

I’m ready to be it and you’re right there too
I’m living nostalgia like
Like ice cream
on dry ice in the summer
And melted in the ultra sheen
And dime store cocoa butter

She waiting for me
Like ice cream
I coulda took all summer

So gimme some more
I like that
