Radio XXVII, side B, track 11: “Cryin'” by Vixen

Vixen - Cryin'Oh, Vixen, it’s nice to know that sometimes girls have the same problems that boys have.  For example, in this song, this awesome song I might add, you answer your own question in the same lyric:  “With your centerfold body goin’ through the moves, why did I keep wastin’ the truth on you?”  Uhhhh, did you say this guy had a centerfold body?  Well, I think we all know why you got wrapped around his finger (amongst other body parts).  Look at the bright side, Vixen.  For one thing, you got a great song out of the deal.  And for another, you’re not alone.

Speaking on behalf of most of the population, we’ve all been blinded by a pretty face (amongst other body parts).  When you’re going out with a pretty person who is also actually pretty horrible, that prettiness goes a long way.  Now, I know that you ladies won’t completely get this since you’re gorgeous yourselves, but there are lot of us out here who are fairly average looking.  So when we start dating someone who is much higher than us on the hot or not scale, it’s a pretty big deal for us.  And when I say us, I’ll just say me, because I don’t want to be speaking for an entire group of average looking people.

Anyway, Vixen, when you’re dating a pretty person who also happens to be a sociopath, you try like hell to ignore those sociopathic tendencies or at least try to make excuses for them.  Eventually, though, that personality is going to come back to bite you, sometimes literally, and there aren’t enough good looks in the world to get beyond it.  Most likely, they’ll end up being the ones to kick you to the curb first, anyway, because it really is hard to let such a pretty thing go, but regardless of who makes the first move in the endgame, the results are always the same.  They go on to presumably date other pretty and pretty horrible people and you continue being average looking but having learned an important lesson about basing your judgment on someone by their looks.  It’s very true that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when you REALLY wanna kiss that cover, it’s really damn difficult.

“Cryin'”

<awesome Vixen jam>

One look
And I saw
What I wanted ta see

Ya know thatcha

Wrapped my heart around your finger so easilyyyyy, yeah

With your centerfold body goin’ through the moves
Why did I keep wastin’ the truth on you
Tonight

I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’
When I think about you
‘Cause I opened my eyes, and I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’

‘Cause those days are gone
Gone

Someone
Twisted you
So ya gave it to me

Yeah, ya gave it to me good
You’re a nightmare everywhere
Disguised as a dreeeeam

Well, I got lost
Wanderin’ through the darkness in your maze’a lies
You charmed your way right into my insides
But tonight

I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’
When I think about you
‘Cause I opened my eyes, and I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’

The tears have fallen to the floooooor

But you won’t catch me cryin’ anymooooooooore

<awesome Vixen jam>

I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’
When I think about you
‘Cause I opened my eyes, and I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’

Those days are gone
Gone

Cryin’
Cryin’
When I think about you
‘Cause I opened my eyes, and I won’t be cryin’
Cryin’
