i never thought the songs that had so much meaning for me before could have so much more meaning now

every breath is a needle to my heart
the lament of pretty baby

I saw something I was not supposed to see
A ghostly memory that keeps on haunting me

(The kitchen door was open a crack,
So naively we peeked inside)

Oh, darling sister, have they hurt you, have they hurt you?
Oh, Pretty Baby, they won't touch you
They won't touch you again
We will fix this incident

I don't want to be seen as a pretty thing
'Cause it's the pretty things that we're always breaking...

(And now she whispers into the mirror:) I'm broken.

Oh doctor, doctor, can you fix me, can you fix me?

Oh Pretty Baby, you're so naive -- but it comes off so cute
We don't want to fix you
We love you just the way you are
The butterfly pinned to the page
The nightingale locked in the cage -- won't you sing for me?
Sing for me, uh-huh
Yeah, we love you just the way you are
Crushed 'neath fashion magazines
Trampled by circus pony dreams -- won't you kiss me?
Won't you kiss me, uh-huh

Oh please, mister, can't you fix me, can't you fix me? (uh-huh)
Someone, anyone, won't you fix me, won't you fix me? (uh-huh)
Oh, someone, please, the moon has raped me
I can feel it inside me
Oh, mama, please let someone fix me!
Let them fix me, uh-huh
Let them fix me, uh-huh

So cry yourself to sleep
Cry yourself to sleep 'cause I am strong and you are weak
Wait, you are strong, and I am weak
Fuck -- just cry yourself to sleep

Am I Not Yours

Who's your schoolfriend?
He's left you some messages
He'd love to see you again
He thinks your ideas are brilliant
And since you've been going out
For coffee with him lately
Well, is he a pretty good looking guy?
Jealousy, am I not yours?
We stopped for some alcohol
You stayed in the car
The bars had gotten out
That line was so long
And I saw you on the pay phone
So I was thinking
Who do you ever call at one A.M.?
Yeah, I wonder who that was
Jealousy, I am not yours
We lay so stiffly
And act like we're sleeping
But my eyes are staring
And you're not breathing heavily
I know when you're sleeping
You purr so softly on my neck
Jealousy, I am
