"Jewels"


Psyche Corp.

Understand me when I say that jewels have no value 'til you name for them the highest price that you are willing to pay.

Diamond rings upon my pillow
Minks a-carpeting my floor
And if you ask me, I will never tire of asking for more.

Mr. Gardner offered emeralds mined by children from Peru
Sir Walter Elliot the Third offered me an entire zoo
In the quasi-fatal business of exhilarating dating, I have found it wise to specify
a generous fee.
So tell me, can you afford me?
And do you want to afford me?

'cause I'm a sweet suicide if you can swing it and I'll
be whoever you like
Just bleed the bottom line
Of course, don't you know that today, danger's in fashion
as the world that you believe in is crashing down

It's not about if you deserve another unbelievable cocktail story
But can you cover up the evidence of your excess from the little people?
Oh honey, your sweet little girl, she doesn't have to know
It's funny, your sweet little girl, she made offers of her own

Mrs. Gardner got a hefty fifty percent
And Lady Elliot the Third offered me castles in Lorraine
Understand me when I say that jewels will be undervalued 'til you take for them what men are unwilling to pay
So tell me what you are willing to pay, tell me
We can take it slow, we can take it slow

'cause I'm a sweet suicide if you can swing it and I'll
be whoever you like
Just bleed the bottom line
Of course, don't you know that today, danger's in fashion
as the world that you believe in is crashing down

If you ask me, I will never tire of asking for more
If you give up your belief in things that cannot be measured
I promise you'll experience a different kind of pleasure
The price you have paid to quantify your lover
Is a bitter joy that few dare to suffer--

I'm a sweet suicide if you can swing it and I'll
be whoever you like
Just bleed the bottom line
Of course, don't you know that today, danger's in fashion
as the world that you believe in is crashing down

We can take it slow, baby
we can take it slow
Just a little more, baby
just a little more

We can take it slow.
