Talking Scarlet Lyrics

Carry no bright torches for me
You hide under the eiderdown
All you can't sweep underneath the carpet
When you cover your neighbour's wife
Scalding marks appear you're talking scarlet
Kid yourself that it's platonic love
Best of friends
Eyes all smiling
Watch them turn to iron filings

I will say late one evening
While moonstruck beside her
I'll break the bonds of friendship one by one. I'll tell her
I'm more than some friendly fellow,
I will say "How ya doin'?" so casually
She never suspects I'm harbouring
Thoughts of kissing her neck
I think my mouth's been drinking
My basest thoughts do the thinking
You've no shame
When Scarlet is your name
Trust in flames
When Scarlet is your name

Yes, he's crying in his sleep,
Yes, he's thoroughly miserable for me
Losing his looks for me, losing
Certain themes keep recurring,
Boundaries start a blurring
I will say late one evening
While moonstruck beside her
I'll break the bonds of friendship one by one. I'll tell her
I'm more than some friendly fellow,
I will say "How ya doin?" so casually
She never suspects I'm harbouring
Thoughts of kissing her neck
I think my mouth's been drinking
My basest thoughts do the thinking
Oh my God, someone tell her
I know she's a star, celestial feast
In the zoo of my heart
She is thrown to the beast, tell her
The mouse here beside her
Won't always be denied her
I've no shame,
Scarlet is my name,
Trust in flames
Scarlet is my name
Carry no bright torches for me.
