Not a day goes by I don't think about you
You left your mark on me it's permanent a tattoo
Pierce the skin and the blood runs through
Oh my baby
The way you move it's right in time
The way you move it's right in time
It's right in time with me
I stand over the stove in the kitchen
Watch the water boil and I listen
Turn off the television
Oh my baby
The way you move it's right in time
The way you move it's right in time
It's right in time with me

I take off my watch and my earrings
My bracelets and everything
Lie on my back and moan at the ceiling
Oh my baby
Think about you and that long ride
I bite my nails I get weak inside
Reach over and turn off the light
Oh my baby
The way you move it's right in time
The way you move it's right in time
It's right in time with me
The way you move it's right in time
The way you move it's right in time
It's right in time with me

She doesn't sound quite as drunk in this song as she usually does. {#Drunk}

 Maybe you are listening on iTunes and the station was shifted because the signal faltered? Your description sound not at all like the piece I am listening to right now. I'm not female, but I surely get this song and see no relation to anything by the Pretenders.

 
Most of ppoop's descriptions are like that, bearing no apparent relation to what's being played.
excuse me, i'm off to amazon

Ditto. This album is so strong throughout and this song is certainly representative. The beat might be mundane but the score is but one facet of the composition. Her lyrics are achingly descriptive, and her delivery is so damn evocative. This album hooked me into LW and had me quickly thereafter exploring her earlier work. Try some yourself and you might just see the great tapestries she weaves with oft-time very little thread. She's the real deal.
And so is Chrissie.

What a song to start an album with. "I moan at the ceiling, ohhh, my baby." The longing in her voice ... wow!
 
This is the outstanding track on the album. Wonderfully emotional and visceral song. A rare 10 from me.
