Subliminalover
The Stevenson Ranch Davidians Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Never wanted anything
Anything but you
When I saw you
On the television screen
I wanted to jump right through to you
To get you, to get you

Subliminalover comes to me in color
Subliminalover I can′t stop thinking of her

I had red wine a thousand times
Over and over again
It might be wild I can't get you off my mind
And it in my head
I can′t forget you, forget you




Subliminalover comes to me in color
Subliminalover I can't stop thinking of her
