Oh no, please let me go

I don't have much to give you but I'll give you what I can
It's not my fault that I'm a woman, not my fault that you're a man
But you're hurting me so badly and I cannot understand
How you're doing this thing to me, how you had the whole thing planned
How you saw me at the movies, how you smiled and came my way
How you knew my friend Veronica which made it all okay
How you loved Visconti's movies, you could watch them every day
How you found me rather lovely in a quirky kind of way

Oh no, please let me go

One thing led to another, swapped our numbers as we smiled
And I went home lightly glowing to my sitter and my child
I thought of you before I slept, admittedly beguiled
By your subtle sensitivity; I felt content and mild
Two days later when you phoned me I was glad to get your call
You suggested we eat Lebanese and then ferry to the shore
To catch a Wenders movie; I said yes and nothing more
Now you've got me in my daughter's room and pinned me to the floor

Oh no, please let me go

I think I could've liked you, maybe loved you given time
We seemed to have so much in common; even Advocaat and lime
But it's clear you only said these things to perpetrate this crime
And I'm sickened to the soul that I was sucked in by your slime
So forgive me as I thrust my stiffened fingers in your eyes
And forgive me as I crush your balls between my rigid thighs
And forgive me as your Adam's apple pay the final price
And forgive me as I laugh to hear you sob and retch and cry

Oh no, please let me go
