Samson-regina Spektor

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
beneath the sheets of paper
lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
your hair was long
when we first met

Samson went back to bed
not much hair left on his head
ate a slice of wonder bread
and went right back to bed
and the history books forgot about us
and the bible didnt mention us
and the bible didnt mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
but they're just old light
they're just light
Your hair was long
when we first met

Samson went back to bed
told me that my hair was red
told me I was beautiful
and came into my bed
oh I cut his hair myself one night
a pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
and he told me that I'd done alright
and kissed me till the morning light, the morning light
and kissed me till the morning light

Samson went back to bed
not much hair left on his head
ate a slice of wonder bread
and went right back to bed
oh we couldnt bring the columns down
no we couldnt destroy a single
and the history books forgot about us
and the bible didnt mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first


I love these lyrics and this amazing woman so much!!
