Purple And Pink Paparazzi Pressure

two strangers, are on a, beaten, broken, bleeding path, together
but they'll gladly make it to each others side, whenever, where ever
into danger, they go in, misbehaving with pistols blazing, in any weather
they're traveling the world in search of, pearls, silver, gold, diamonds and other forbidden treasures

together, they're been through hell and back and they still haven't met they're tether
they'll sadly never be able to see, they're friends and family again, so they write they're letters
into danger, they go, driving through the day, in rain shine or snow, they wont slow down, no not ever
they're so curious about being realists, but they're idealists so forever they'll be on they're adventures

no responsibilities, and no obligations, but don't you dare tell them they're lives are as light as a feather
you won't accomplish anything at all, look buddy just take a walk, i promise you, you don't wanna see them lose they're temper
they look beautiful, cause they both dress in all the best designer clothes, she's in a sunflower dress and he's dressed in all black leather
it was like a dream, he found her when she was just sixteen, she looked like a ghost, he didn't want to leave her alone, so he took her from a broken home, and let her live with him in his condo, he even promised her that her life would eventually get better

she didn't bring much with her, just two suitcases, filled with all her books, some loose clothes, a kodak camera, and her cat heather
two days later, she was shooting his shotgun while he was shooting heroin, she learns fast so i guess you could say she's a real go getter
i still remember that day by the bay when they all tried to rape her, she sliced they're veins with razor blades, and when her man came through with a sawed off shotgun, they all paused, with they're jaws hanging in silence, and they're eyes filled with frightening terror
they both still go to church and pray every single sunday, they're out on the town at a cafe having fun today, cause when you're living a life of sin and destruction, there's nothing in the world but love that can save you when you're constantly under all this purple and pink papparazzi pressure
