Another song lyric to share

Need to add disclaimer –
sadly this is not my work [wish it was I’d be rich like Missy now!]

To quote what I replied to Linaji below –
[& thank you for making me see my blunder]
This is a song a top charting one here in Australia – Missy Higgins is one of Australia’s top Country singers and this was her second song the one that sealed her future as our best. Her first was “Am I not Pretty Enough!” – I should post that one in here too. I do Love her work as it’s following in the wake of other Aussie country singers – adding a lot of rock to their country – but she also adds a touch of jazz!

I hope you OS people can hear this through the net somehow! ~ adg

SCAR ~ Missy Higgins

He left a card and a bar of soap and a scrubbing brush next to a note
That said use this right down to your bones.
And before I knew I had Jonny’s spiel and it felt easy being clean like him
I thought this one knows better than I do

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me so I’d fit

And doesn’t that sound familiar …… Doesn’t that hit too close to home
Doesn’t that make you shiver ………. The way things could have gone
And doesn’t that feel peculiar ………. That everyone wants a little more
So that I do remember …………………. To never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar?

So the next one came with a bag of treats she smelt like sugar and spoke like the seas
And she told me don’t trust them, trust me
And she pulled at my stitches one by one looked at my insides clicking her tongue
And said this will all have to come undone

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
She tried to blunt me so I’d fit

And doesn’t that sound familiar, [etc]

And I realised just in time although my old self was hard to find
You could bathe me in your finest wine but I’ll never give you mine

Cos I’m a little bit tired of hearing that I’ll be the bad fruit no body buys
Tell me did you think we’d all dream the same?

And doesn’t that sound familiar, [etc]

I think we can all affiliate to this some where lol
enjoy ~ adg :o)
