Baby says, "I'm tearing her down"
Shoulder to shoulder, I hold her too lightly
And baby says, "Baby, your kiss don't do anything."
Oh sweetness

All I need's a brand new heart
It's old and it's cold and it's no longer golden
And baby says "Baby, you're right! But that's no excuse."
And my baby says


It's a lie, it's a cop out
And I know you know I know why
You won't try
Cause you're scared and you're weak
And you don't give a fuck about me
And I do believe that you hate yourself


And I knew you'd never stay forever
Holding it together, making songs for me
And all right, forever's on your side
Oh it's only time it's longer than you think


And baby says, "this house is a home"
It's worn and it's torn and it holds only your bones
Baby says "Baby, you're cursed. Oh, why can't you see?"
Oh sweetness


All I need's a brand new head
Clear without fears and it knows only your name
Baby says "Baby, you're right! But you'll never win."
And my baby says


It's a lie, it's a cop out
And I know you know I know why
You won't try
Cause you're scared and you're weak
And you don't give a fuck about me
And I do believe that you hate yourself


And I knew you'd never stay forever
Holding it together making songs for me
And all right, forever's on your side
Oh it's only time.
It's longer than you think


And I knew you'd never stay forever
Holding it together making songs for me
And all right, forever's on your side
Oh it's only time. It's longer than you think


And she says, "It's a cop out
And I know you know I know
I know you know I know you know."

    General Commentthis is basically exactly where i am right now. except i'm taking the "baby" role.

    "And I know you know I know why
    You won't try
    Cause you're scared and you're weak

    General CommentI thought "Baby" was the band, and this song was about Beulah breaking up.
