Today I sent a message, knowing my chances of getting response, was small.
I was set on receiving, my heart believing,
I'd be the one who'd take the call.
You just pulled up beside me, knowing my senses were off,
looking so safe and so warm in your car.
Then you held out your hand, before I could recoil,
you sent 2,000 volts to my heart.
When I woke up this morning, I'd had terrible dreams,
I walked up to my headstone in the park.
Junkie angels with bat wings were reaching up from the soil,
but I sensed you had been watching all along.
Well, I ain't got time to hesitate,
I better stop you before you start,
you put 2,000 volts to my heart.
You sent 2,000 volts to my heart.
I see your face in the dream I can't awake from,
I know the rules, but I can't play no more.
You move fast, too fast to follow.
I'm comin back to even up the score.
Now I know what your game is and I won't play along.
Since then, I have been sleeping in my car.
I'll keep my gun beside me and I'll remember your face.
I'll pull over beside you and smile.
Then I'll hold out my hands,
before you can recoil,
I'll send 2,000 volts to your heart.
