Melissa Etheridge – Similar Features

Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
She’s got similar features with longer hair
And if that’s what it takes to get you through
Go on and close your eyes it shouldn’t bother you

You never had to wait for nothing in your life
I guess wanting me must have been a steel blue knife
And when night after night the scent of passion would linger
You had to have the jewels wrapped around your finger
Now you keep running down the road in your midnight state of mind
Curiosity kills if you can’t read the signs

Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
She’s got similar features with longer hair
And if that’s what it takes to get you through
Go on and close your eyes it shouldn’t bother you

Dancing with the wall made you bitter and sweet
There ain’t much you can do when they just lay it at your feet
But you could tell by the song I wanted to be the one
Did you listen again when the damage was done?
Now the paint’s still wet in your do-it-by-number dream
Are you gonna tell me how it felt, will you tell me what it means?

Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
She’s got similar features with longer hair
And if that’s what it takes to get you through
Go on and close your eyes it shouldn’t bother you

Was it want with no desire?
Was it smoke with no fire?
Did I say it doesn’t rip me apart? – I lied
I’m sorry dear, my hands are tied

Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
She’s got similar features with longer hair
And if that’s what it takes to get you through
Go on and close your eyes it shouldn’t bother you

    I was going to slag off that song for lack of sparklebunnyness, but I actually like it now that I remember which song it is.

    (Don’t tell Suzan, I’ll never hear the end of it.. But you like lesbean folk Emmy, you secretly doooo ;))

    And you would have been quite right to slag it on that count; I really couldn’t make any kind of a convincing defence for it in terms of sparklebunny factor. But it matched – matches – my state of mind, so I guess I’ll plead a temporary failure in the quality control department.

    Actually – and this is probably more of a giveaway of the extent of my ‘girlfriend-has-lost-it’ mood – it was a choice between that or this.

    Because everybody needs a little Kylie sometimes.

    Just not today.

    *shrugs*

    Sorry. Normal service will be resumed blah blah… :(

    S’alright. Not everything needs to be sparklebunny all the time–this is how you appreciate the sparkle next to the drearyness.

    I suppose we should be glad it wasn’t Coldplay or Snow Patrol then if you’re feeling a bit blah. Cos they’re awful and NO ONE NEEDS THAT.
