Lyrics

I hold your dress, your dress is blue
I'm a coin that fell into the sea
Now stumbling around, I'm lost from view
Do you know what became of me

He can see with his eyes closed
He'll leave you something to remember him by
Valentine said no way out
No way out and no goodbye

Now you're finally at my mercy
Now you're at my beck and call
You were born with just one kiss
That's all it took

He comes to this bar, he gets desperate
He's been shot and killed by love
Sits at the bar thinks about all those angels in heaven
And offer him to the overpass above

I hold your dress, your dress is blue
I am a coin that fell into the sea
Stumbling around but now I'm lost from view
On the losing side of eternity

Now you're finally at my mercy
Now you're at my beck and call
You were born with just one kiss
That's all it took
