Love Struck You Dumb

from by Mopey

lyrics

you were minding your own business
couldn't be bothered with happiness
sitting pretty in complacence, but then

love struck you dumb
like a riot cop's baton
it cut out your tongue
and sat on your lungs

you were walking down the street
you weren't looking for nothing
weren't searching for nobody, but then

love struck you dumb
like a riot cop's baton
it cut out your tongue
and sat on your lungs
yeah love struck you dumb
like spring's babbling song
it crept up in the calm
with scarves and bells and flowers on

all it's colours bathed in sun
the river current run

it took you by the hand
and kissed you in the shade
now your heart is like a bag of kittens
waiting to be drowned
it snatched you away from
life's grim parade and
slowly, insistently pulled you down
