and this ISN'T just reflecting on more recent attemps (i.e. 2000 forwards)
is a lot like this:
you love the song but not the singer
you've got me wrapped around your finger
you want the sin without the sinner
because i've consistently been a nice idea for many a fine human bean (sic)
but never quite nice enough to disrupt your life for.
i refuse to draw any conclusion from this, coz i'm alright.
must just be my picking skills that are the suck-a-most-on-toast
