We can fight our desires
But when we start making fires
We get ever so hot
Whether we like it or not
They say we can love who we trust
But what is love without lust?
Two hearts with accurate devotions
And what are feelings without emotions?

I hang my hopes out on the line
Will they be ready for you in time
If you leave them out too long
They'll be withered by the sun
Full stops and exclamation marks
My words stumble before I start
How far can you send emotions?
Can this bridge cross the ocean? 

Let's go to war
To make peace
Let's be cold
To create heat
I hope in darkness
We can see
And you're not blinded by the light from me 

I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand

The Fifties were all over the runways for Couture and Resort, and a kitschy love of old-fashioned domesticity has been cropping up everywhere. Even Frida Gianni claimed in this month's issue of W that if she weren't the Creative Director of Gucci, she would want to be a housewife. The trend is perfectly captured in Beyonce's new music video for "Why Don't You Love Me?"

Other fabulous housewives:

[Victoria Beckham for US Glamour]

[Madonna for Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 campaign]

I love it!
