Lost In Paradise

The Findells

Another Femme Fatale

The Findells


Did you see her? Did she hold my heart in her hands? Did she sashay through the room like Lauren Bacall Changing the heart of every mortal man? Did you buy her a drink? Did you think that you could penetrate her shell? A brown fag floating in the sea of her lips like a ladle in a wishing well. Did you take her home? Oh no…no, never take her home. You’ll be lost forever in a web of intrigue and you’ll have to take the rap alone. Don’t you know she just another femme fatale Here she comes again- another femme fatale She’ll leave you breathless- another femme fatale She’ll lure you into her bed and in the morning you could wake up dead. Oh yeah. Did you pull her close? Dodging glances and making time Talking clever innuendo in the shadows of the Venetian blinds Did you see in her eyes All the pain caused by those other men? A life full of sorrow and near misses That led her to a life of sin Did she call my name Just by mistake, in passionate refrain? Were you planning a life together As you stared at the ceiling stain? There she goes again – another femme fatale So very wise – another femme fatale A contradiction – another femme fatale Black and white and shades of grey Turn the channel but she won’t go away – Oh no. Did she blow you a kiss through the window of a taxi or from the back of a train? A siren growing closer and no time at all to cover up the curtain stain.
