Pretty Things


 

She used to love

the pretty boys

their rock hard abs

polished toys

a jet-set life

baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

 

But ugly blame

can leave you cold

stain your name

and scar your soul.

Looking

for a kinder love

a friend to never tire of

arms to hold her when she’s sad

that kinder love she’s never had.

 

She used to love the pretty boys

rock hard abs

polished toys

the jet-set life

baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

 

Until the day

she woke up grim

knew that she was

through with him

left his wrath

left his whims

she’s never going back again.

 

Looking

for a kinder love

a friend to never tire of

arms to hold her when she’s sad

that kinder love she’s never had.

 

She used to love

the pretty boys

rock hard abs

polished toys

the jet-set life

baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

 

Her careful life

golden chains

there’s no one now

that she can blame

just face the cold

and brave the pain

she’s never going back again.

 

So listen, girls best think twice

pretty boys’ bedroom eyes

will crush your soul and make up lies

for pretty is as pretty does

and a wicked love

whose time has waned

leaves an empty heart is a dirty shame.

 

She’s looking for a kinder love

a friend to never tire of

arms to hold her

when she’s sad

the kinder love

she’s never had.
