‘Cause someone could break your neck
Coming up behind you, always coming and you’d never have a clue

I never look behind, all the time
I will wait forever, always looking straight
Thinking, counting, all the hours you wait

And now another clue, I would ask
If you could help me out
It’s hard to understand
‘Cause when you’re running by yourself
It’s hard to find someone to hold your hand

And now it’s good to be tough on me
But I will wait forever
I need someone else to look into my eyes and tell me
Girl, you know you gotta watch your health

To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night
I see you on a dark night


Pop for Misfits

Can a former noise musician become a star?

“One of her signature songs is “Oblivion,” an upbeat but ominous dance track; Boucher doesn’t sing it so much as haunt it. “Oblivion” never appeared on any Billboard chart, but last year Pitchfork, the definitive indie publication, called it the best song of the decade so far, which was a complicated sort of compliment. “Oblivion” was a great choice to top the Pitchfork list precisely because it was not an obvious choice.”
