Lyrics of Crush with Eyeliner

I know you
I know you've seen her
She's a sad tomato
She's three miles of bad road
Walking down the street
Will I never meet her?
She's a real woman child
Oh my kiss breath turpentine

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
Have you seen her come around?
My crush with eyeliner

I'm in like.
I'm in-fatuated.
It's all too much-the pressure
She's all that I can take
What position should I wear?
Cop an attitude? - You faker
How can I convince her? - Faker
That I'm invented too, yeah

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
We all invent ourselves and,
Uh, you know me

She's a sad tomato
She's three miles of bad road
She's her own invention
That gets me in the throat
What can I make myself be?
Life is strange, yeah life is strange
What can I make myself be - Faker
To make her mine?

I am smitten
I'll do anything (I'll do anything)
Oh kiss breath turpentine
My crush with eyeliner

I am smitten
And you know me, yeah
You know me
I could be your Frankenstein
My crush with eyeliner

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
Won't you be my valentine?
My crush with eyeliner


Comments




'Crush with Eyeliner' is a song by R.E.M., released as the third single from their ninth studio album 'Monster'. Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore provides background vocals.

Michael Stipe claims the song was inspired by the band New York Dolls, who, in his opinion, 'knew how to exaggerate a song, to make it sound really sleazy and over the top.' This was also one of the first songs that surfaced from Stipe after the writer's block that hounded him after the death of his friend, actor River Phoenix. The single's video, directed by Spike Jonze, shows a group of Japanese youths dancing and miming to the track at a party, whilst the band are shown briefly, looking on. It is available on the music video compilation 'Parallel'.
