Two to tangoI am painting my nails black for you,
it's your darkness seeping in.
I put burning lipstick on for you,
it's my heart for all to see.
It takes two to tango,
but I never asked you to cut in.
I wanted to dance a softer tune,
while you never changed a beat.
So now you'll face the music,
you wrote it all yourself.
I've painted my nails black for you,
put on tall stiletto heels.
The floor is spread with saw dust,
and I will take the lead.
Today I'll do your tango,
tango till you weep.
