SUZETTE

Suzette, you're like a cigarette
You take my breath
And your dangerous
You keep me in your pocket
Right over your breast
You ride me like a jet
Then you say you need a rest

Your diamond spiked heels
And your phony accent
Used to give me the chills
I thought I knew what it meant
You kept me up,
you never let me down
You just kind lost touch, disappeared
I never knew where you went

Suzette, you were so desperate
I remember you best
watching the sunsets Fade
Suzette are you ready yet?

Suzette, do you remember that place
Where we used to live
So long ago
Now there's hardly any trace
People ask about you,
they wonder where you are
And some people swear it's you on tv
Trying to be a singing star

Suzette, you were so desperate
I remember you best
watching the sunsets Fade
Suzette are you ready yet?
