Mood Swing (Luscious Jackson)

You come and get me when I’m all alone
On the corner just skin and bones
Fever in and fever out
You’re the swinger who brings me doubt

Loverboy where you comin’ from
Down there, out back always on the run
Cool, cool, deep blues
You’re the shine on my shoes

Is it in the damp heat inside of me
Or is it in the fire that we collide
I feed you mood swing
But you’re never satisfied

Is it in the damp heat inside of me
Or is it in the fire that we collide
I feed you mood swing
But you’re never satisfied

 

Mood swing I can’t let you win
You bring me up,
You bring me down
Mood swing I can’t give in
To your subtle wiles
And your endless miles

You love me now but you’ll hate me soon
In the light of the dark moon
Smiling faces always turn away
You’re the kind that likes to play

Your fun and games take me up and down
With the skill of a circus clown
You see through my truth
I give it up ’cause it’s up to you

You stare me down how you scare me
But my eyes are open wide
And I will rise to fight you
My delight won’t be denied

Mood swing I can’t let you win
You bring me up, 
You bring me down
Mood swing I can’t give in 
To your subtle wiles
And your endless miles

(Jill Cunniff, Vivian Trimble)
