Barbie's Cradle

Shiny Red Balloon

Play

Im keeping my affair in a book
So this is how a villain feels
They're running seasons in my chest
And I'm only to keep them

Chorus:
Coz maybe its not true
Love on the TV
Just like we imagine it
And it's so hard to do
When theres always some distraction
A shiny red balloon
It spoils everything

Im keepin my affair in a book
Such practical and harmless vice
But I'm feeling it could end up painfully
And the TV should apologize

(Repeat Chorus)

I'm keeping my affair in a book
My long and lonely compromise
How can you live like that my dear?
Well we do it

True
Love on the TV
Just like we imagine it
And it's so hard to do
When theres always some distraction
A shiny red balloon
It spoils everything

(Repeat Chorus)
It spoils everything
