Show me what it's like

As pretty as your picture
As clever as your prose
As rich as your life style
As good as your cause

You're up on my altar
Instead of to pray
It's my fate to falter
So try as I may

I wanna see you fall
I wanna see you cry
I wanna see you writhe
'Cause baby it hurts sometimes
I know you know

As quick as your humour
As soave as your friends
As lush as your lips are
As young as I was

When I'm lost in the real
Yours is a world I can deal with alright
I can look to my heros to bear my ordeals tonight
And say oh show me what it's like
