Here is a haunting song with (if I am hearing it right) a lesbian theme. The vocal is beautifully sung. The lyrics are well-written. The instrumentation is understated, but perfectly suited to the song and its mood. Nice mix and production. The singer has an amazing voice.

    - Kate Carpenter
Lyrics

If I had a wife
She'd be beauttiful
Cold as the night
Is pin-pricked and blue
If I had a wife
She'd be just like you

If I had a wife
She'd be like no one else
Keep herself to herself
A pin-pricked mystery who
If I didn't know better
I would say
That she was like you

If I had a wife
If I had a wife
If I had a wife

If I had a wife
She'd let life come between us
Then she'd kiss me like Judas
With a tear in her eye
Then she'd lay me like Judith
One last time
And leave me to die

So who needs a wife?
Who needs a wife?
Who needs a wife?

Cos if I had a wife
If I had a wife
She'd be just like you.
