about

From the debut album "Confess, My Love, Confess"

lyrics

Her mother said she’s not allowed
to put his fingers in her mouth,
but she did.

She was unhappy twenty years,
he dried her spit and drained her tears,
he promised he’d never leave.

And when he said “I Love You Girl”
he grabbed her wrists and pulled her hair,
and said she’s one of a kind.

And then he used her broken heart
to cut her in her deepest parts
and claimed “Your last breath is mine”.

Girls that age should not talk to boys
and mothers are always right,
beneath a wall of tender pillows
there lies the sharpest knife.

He wrote his father all is well
he can’t afford to call from hell
and the operators in French.

He bought her rings with plastic pearls,
expensive rooms in cheap motels
but, she never really asked for much.

They were together for a month
she always said she wants to dance
He left the room with trembling hands…

He couldn’t bare to see her eyes,
they showed reflections of a child
that just became a man.

Girls that age should not talk to boys
and mothers are always right,
beneath a wall of tender pillows
there lies the sharpest knife.
