Caricatures of your wrecking ball gown
In my mind all the time

I wanna be in that damsel patterned alley
Where you go for a smoke

Sorrow slow dances
The phones are lighting up
Taking no chances
Close but never close enough

Been watching cowboy films
On gloomy afternoons
Tinting the solitude
Put on your dancing shoes
And show me what to do
I know you've got the moves

All my own stunts
High noon has changed its tune
Linking arms, sinking hearts

Sorrow slow dances
Around the edges of her eyes
Taking no chances
The last one out will win a prize

Been watching cowboy films
On gloomy afternoons
Tinting the solitude
Put on your dancing shoes
And show me what to do
I know you've got the moves

Song facts

"Josh Homme comes and sings on this one. He's very dominant, his voice. When you record his voice it just sort of leaps out, it's great. What else can I tell you about that one? It's got another reference to cowboy films. It just says, "I've been watching cowboy films on gloomy afternoons" which were something I were doing at the time. It's also where we let ourselves have a bit of a wig-out." - Alex Turner
