lyrics

I just wanted an Action Man
Oh, no, no
Not a fatal attraction, man
Oh, do you remember
Last December
When the lights upon the river went out one by one
Seems unreal now
I was caught out
With my senses and objections all gone

I thought you were an angel
You looked like an angel
But you’re just the devil I know
And the stars in your eyes
Were just glittering lies
That faltered and died in the snow
Feel the darkness descend on my home
I didn’t want to spend Christmas alone
But we’re all just raw meat
On the same filthy sheets
Lost forever, ever

If you undress an Action Man
Oh, no, no
All you find is subtraction, man
Disappointment comes slowly
When you know me
As the lights upon the tree blow their bulbs one by one
Make your move now
Got to get out
When your version of affection has gone

I thought you were an angel
You looked like an angel
But you’re just the devil I know
And the stars in your eyes
Were just pitiful lies
That faltered and died in the snow
Feel the darkness descend on my home
I didn’t want to spend Christmas alone
But we’re all just raw meat
Left to rot on the street
Lost forever, ever, ever, ever

Will I unwrap an Action Man?
Don’t think so
