Regina Spektor - Sampson

 

Regina Spektor - Sampson

SOOOO many reasons this song fits right now.

You are my sweetest downfall    (truth)
I loved you first, I loved you first   (I really did)
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth  (memory)
I have to go, I have to go  (If only I could)
Your hair was long when we first met  (It was)

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head (remember when I bleached you?)
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed  (or that gross spaghetti you made)
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us  (sure did forget about us)
And the bible didn't 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  (I miss our walks in the middle of the night)
But they're just old light, they're just old light   (and listening to music spaced out of our goards for hours)
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red  (It is)
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed  (I'll never forget that)
Oh I cut his hair myself one night  (or bleached it, whatever)
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light 
And he told me that I'd done alright  (you were proud of me :) )
And kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light  (I miss your kiss)
And he kissed me 'til the mornin' light  (to feel this again)

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first
