When we wrote ‘Lovetrap’ together, it was so collaborative. I wrote a verse, he wrote a verse, he sang my verse, reversing the lyrics. It was just crazy back and forth. It was really fun because we feed off each other's crazy mind. It's very fluid and easy and exciting.

LOVETRAP

Soko and Ariel Pink

kinky assasin
blew a hole in my chest
and she left me dead alive
i'm at her mercy
i beg her for pity
but she kills me with a smile

be my girlfriend
be my best friend
be my everything
don't leave my side
don't make me cry
just be my merman
i wanna be your mermaid

absolutely lost in the world
but it's too hard to figure out
i'm completely lost and i worry
that it's too late to find my way out
oh i wanna find my way out

love trap
stuck in a doomsday
and heaven
is too hard to reach
so i wander
standing in place
while i'm dreaming of my own
pre-cambrion age

love trap
stuck in a dooms day
and heaven
is too hard to reach
so i wander
standing in place
while i'm dreaming of my own
pre-cambrian age

INTERLUDE

ariel: oh soko kiss me
soko: no chance, no romance
ariel: oh why you gotta hurt me like that?
soko: just give me time, to think, i just need my space
ariel: space from me? come here
soko: ariel stop it, don't put pressure on me
ariel: just give me one more chance
soko: last chance
ariel: for love?
soko: yes for love

a mermaid man not half a man
she delapidates my soul
she bursts my heart with her laser eyes
i'm cut in half when she's not around

be my girlfriend
be my best friend
be my one night fling
don't leave my side
don't make me cry
just be my mermaid
be my mermaid

absolutely lost in the world
but it's too hard to figure out
i'm completely lost and i worry
that it's too late to find my way out
oh i wanna find my way out

love trap
stuck in a doomsday
and heaven
is too hard to reach
so i wander
standing in place
while i'm dreaming of my own
pre-cambrian age
