You Know I'm No Good, by Amy Winehouse




Some women are like a force of nature. We must accept we are helpless before them. You just have to let go, because otherwise you will live in hell: your chest, your stomach, your whole body will burn with a mixture of jealousy, desire, envy, passion, lust. We can't but fall in love with them: no fair warning will help us from falling into the darkness of their abyss. Sweat, whiskey, sex and sax: the ceiling of the night will drip tears of blood. We have to let fate tempt us; accept our destinies and walk the plank, blindfolded, out of our own free will. This is the real siren's call. Man's ruin. A beautiful, strong, intelligent, sexy woman. Pura piel, pura voz. Ella and Roberta haunt her song. Throw the dice. Close your eyes. You know it, and still you will fall.
