How The Body Falls Apart/Your Lips And Me lyrics

How The Body Falls Apart/Your Lips And Me

ALL WOMEN
How the body falls apart
First the groin and then the heart
It?s easy
And it?s smart

Things on which we most depend
Seem to pale us in the end
How like, like a body
When the body fall apart

---

TRINA
The baby is crying on the swings
And the oldest is kicking ass
The parakeet hasn?t moved its wings yet
All good things come to past

I think of sunshine
And roses in bloom
But you?re off sitting
With another someone
In another room

That?s all right dear
You go on digging your grave dear
I didn?t know that you were lonely
I thought you?d agree
But when I saw your lips
I knew they didn?t belong to me

Your mother reports your father?s blue dear
And your father reports he?s fine
Your mother withheld her love from you dear
I try withholding mine

The neighbors love me
They tell me I?m great
But you?re off snoozing
With another floozy
In another state

That?s all right dear
You go on digging your grave dear
I didn?t know you?re so attractive
I thought you?d agree
But when I saw your lips
I knew they didn?t belong to me

Nice day
Nice life
Precious few people squawk
Nice

Good friends
High life
Isn?t it fun to talk?
Nice

The oldest drinks wine
The baby?s wailing
And the parakeet still can?t fly
Your mother reports your fathers failing
Two years failed to die

The neighbors love me
They say I?m a clown
It?s awful dressing in my blue carnation
When you?re outta town

Pay no mind dear
Just go on digging your grave dear
I didn?t ask to be your mother
Your lips were the key
But when I saw your lips
I knew they didn?t belong
No they didn?t belong
I?m sure they didn?t belong to me
