Hark! The angels sing with you when you're bored
I kept a ring on you when I couldn't fess up
I didn't love you anymore
But I couldn't mess up again
And I made a real good wreck of you, I'm sure
Sailed out with me, and I veered to the storm
I couldn't look you in the eye
And I put down my fork and cried
And oh man, what's the price?
It's gettin' harder as I get older to fill my appetite wholly
Only run to get to the next heat
And it's a dream so far
Wonder as I walk you out to your car
"Am I the LA skank I feared I'd become?
Or just a hen under the knife
Who saw it comin' for her head again?"
And oh man, I rolled the dice
It's getting harder as I get older to kill my knack for flight wholly
Only singing for ceremony
'Til I can get you back
From the idiot kid in me
Who crossed her fingers when I had you in my grasp
Can you forgive me?
Would you resent me
If you just let me be the way I am?
