Instead of wasting everybody’s time with awkward Mexican standoffs, I believe all love triangles should be disputed and resolved with electro-tango showdowns. A couple of songs is all we need, and just like that we’re done. Also, this is by far the sexier way of doing it.

Molasses by The Hush Sound

You are made of sugar, milk and molasses,
So, little darlin’, you attract all the bees.
You are the gazer, you are the attraction;
It takes a little vanity to know what it means.

I know it ‘cause you wrote it down a hundred times,
But you say that you’re doin’ just fine.

Say there’s something better,
But today there is a cold moon rising.
You wanted something better,
But tonight? Tonight you’re giving up.

I asked a question, give me an answer.
You’ll say the word, and I will disappear.
You’re running fast, but you can run faster.
Your wheels to the dirt, gonna make it clear.

I know it ‘cause you wrote it down a hundred times,
But you say that you’re doin’ just fine.

Say there’s something better,
But today there is a cold moon rising.
You wanted something better,
But tonight you know you’ll never find it.

Say there’s something better,
But today there is a cold moon rising.
You wanted something better,
But tonight? Tonight you’re giving…

Darkness.
And you can’t hear me.
I will try to draw you near me,
But in the morning you will wake up alone.
When your body breaks,
Even the hummingbirds will feel the earthquake.
You’ll sing a song of your heart’s complaints.

Sing it loud,
Sing it clear!
Oh, sing so I can hear you,
Then sing it soft in my ear.
Take it up,
Or take out,
Put me down,
In the grand,
I’ll go anywhere with you.

Say there’s something better,
You don’t see it, you won’t find it.
Say there’s something better,
You’re behind it, but you won’t get it.
La da da, la da da.
La da da, la da da.
Say there’s something better,
But today there is a cold moon rising.
You wanted something better,
But tonight, you know you’ll never find it.
La da da, la da da.
La da da, la da da.
Say there’s something better,
You don’t see it, you won’t find it.
Say there’s something better,
You’re behind it, but you won’t get it.
