                        The melody that takes you prisoner at the very first second...
The lyrics that leave a few things unanswered, and a few thoughts unclear...
Maybe you'll be lucky and understand what this song is really about...
I give in! And probably this is its chief attraction for me?

Close your eyes... "It couldn't happen here"... but here it is!

                Yesterday, remember how clear it seemed
In six inch heels, quoting magazines
Go all the way, you knew you could
So far, so good

Someone asked: Who do you think you are?
Who pays your bills? How come you came this far?
Shrugged him off, and locked the door
So good, this far

     Now it almost seems impossible
     We've drunk too much, and woke up everyone
     I may be wrong, I thought we said
     It couldn't happen here

I don't expect to talk in terms of sense
Our dignity and injured innocence
It contradicts your battle-scars
Still healed, so far

     Now it almost seems incredible
     We've laughed too loud, and woke up everyone
     I may be wrong, but I thought we said
     It couldn't happen here

     Now it almost seems impossible
     We've found ourselves back where we started from
     I may be wrong, I thought we said
     It couldn't happen here

     I may be wrong, I thought we said
     It couldn't happen here
