You think someone’s coming to save you
but I know that someone’s been and gone
I watched her shake her head in disgust
because you wouldn’t dance to her song.
The graveyard’s full of believers
keeping the strawberries ruby red light
and the church is full up with sinners
who are destined to walk with the night.
I’m polishing my halo for J.Lo,
looking my best for the show
hoping someone will come save me
hoping it might be J;Lo
