playNaive Little Me

from Adam Ezra (2000) BUY

well i’d breath in your skin once the soap smell was gone

when we’d lie around the house with the radio on

but naive little me, oh the innocent fawn

never realized i had you on loan

if i could bottle that smell i could sustain this old smile

like a puff from the bowl it might numb me a while

i’d drink you like wine but all i’d taste is the bile

from the indifference i heard in your tone

don’t leave me here on my own

well you left with a fanfare a big ole’ parade

a scene at the palace, your impetuous slave

couldn’t keep his mouth shut even after forbade

for he dreamed of a seat at your throne

well this must have amused you, a jester was he

to dance in your presence desperate to see

just one glimpse in his eyes be it love or pity

but none such human a gesture was shown

don’t leave me here on my own

well i’d like to recall you as underworld bound

with cursed, virtuous pets you keep chained to the ground

a Hades spawned creature with snakes all around

turning all of your suitors to stone

and i’d like to believe i’ve escaped from your hold

fleeing misery, demonous tortures untold

ah but if i could tame you the treasures behold

will remain to me ever unknown

don’t leave me here on my own

well my talent is wasted, my wit’s unresolved

i’ve doubled my ante, i’ve scratched and i’ve clawed

and i’m battered and beaten like some back alley dog

made of nothing but skin and bones

so i’ll write down a letter, i’ll sing and i’ll pray

and it will help to console me in some self indulged way

so fuck you my darling, i’ll see you someday

when a sturdier heart i have grown

cause you left me here on my own
