Cursive - The Lament Of Pretty Baby Lyrics

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"
