playNaive Little Me

from View From The Root (2010) BUY AEG STORE

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 bone

 

 

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
