    On the runway and in her murder walk
    You could tell
    Maybe it’s how she fell
    When she saw you
    Maybe it’s how she fell
    Like some bright orange pumps
    It was the murder mystery she didn’t want
    She put her claws deep in your arms
    And it made the tracks go all red
    Pull yourself together hon
    Or heaven’s just in your head
    When the bulbs had all broke and hit the ground
    There was hardly any sound
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah
    They could see a lot of doubt
    On the runway with the murder walk walkin
    And they knew
    All along it was you
    It’s too late now
    Cause breaking up’s hard to do

    And it looked like maybe you could settle in
    And say
    Did you get tired
    Did you feel all of the compression
    Did you look off around

    No kidding
    I wanted to hang out some
    I thought when you danced it looked all right
    I thought that you talked pretty cool
    But don’t get me wrong I wasn’t uptight
    Intentions they fly out the window when you let
    The window stay open and like before I said
    No kidding
    Although it was nothing heavy
    There’s things that I could have showed you
    Like how I wanted to be your friend

    Now I know I don’t just wish I did
    And she could be able to take me far
    So come over my house and save, save my life

    I’m assuming you’ll put me right
    I’m assuming you’re out of sight
