The epitome of love
(From the album ARENA)
The epitome of love is a stranger in a hat
It's a man with a needle, it's a singer with a bat
Or something like that, or something like that
And roses
The epitome of love is a tear jerk and a shoulder
It's a television secret, it's a woman growing older
It's a rolling boulder, it's a rolling boulder
And roses
The epitome of love is a fix up and a candle
It's a waving hated lover, it's a door without a handle
It's a bored dumb vandal, it's a bored dumb vandal
And roses
The epitome of love is a howl and a stagger
It's a falling roller coaster, it's another carpet bagger
It's a dead man and a dagger, a dead man and dagger
And roses
The epitome of love is a lover and a label
It's a man in chains it's a woman who is able
It's an undone cable, an undone cable
And roses
The epitome of love is a pistol at the back
It's a second before dying it's a whip about to crack
It's a head inside a sack, a head inside a sack
And roses
The epitome of love is a woman and a call
It's a pillar and a ditch it's a ghost inside a wall
It's a babe about to fall, it's a babe about to fall
And roses
The epitome of love is a bonny on a beach
It's a woman and a whistle it's a sailor and a leech
It's nothing you can teach, it's nothing you can teach
And roses
The epitome of love is a dagger at the heart
It's a mix up and a fuck up a divorce about to start
It's two people grown apart, two people grown apart
And roses
The epitome of love is a short sharp shock
It's a woman and a weapon it's a door without a lock
It's a broken bleeding rock, a broken bleeding rock
And roses
The epitome of love is children in tears
It's a man and woman screaming, it's a bedroom full of fears
It's the circle of the years, the circle of the years
And roses
The epitome of love is a button on the floor
It's a stain inside a kitchen, it's a knocking at the door
It's the paying of a whore, the paying of a whore
And roses
The epitome of love is a fire in the face
It's the falling of souls, it's a shredded veil of lace
It's a one legged race, it's a one legged race
And roses
