Look at me, nothing bad
Is ever going to happen to you again
Although you are a solid pile of hate
You're still pretty like a cake
Pulling out a bat at the Kill Me Court
Slaps me that I can't handle you
But yes, no, yes, no, yes
Tell me how to live

Boy soprano
Take me away from here
Boy soprano
Where will we go tonight?
Boy soprano
Do what you can to shock me
Boy soprano
Boy, boy, boy
(I hope you make it; I hope you have)

When you get to be my age
The police don't assume
That you still like to light things on fire
Bearing that in mind
I wouldn't trust me either
But it was the two of us watching
Two bunnies hop across
The Peach Street Gang
Yes, no, yes, no, yes
Confide in me, you don't want to die

Look back from the stains on my gloves
To the stains on yours
Thank you for telling me
Vodka is a poncy drink, but little man
The hand ball is in your court

Boy soprano
Take me away from here
Boy soprano
Where will we go tonight?
Boy soprano
Do what you can to shock me
Boy soprano
I hope you make it; I hope you have

    General CommentThis is from SPIN.com:

    "Boy Soprano," a hauntingly entrancing track, is about "three young men between 18 and 22 who I have really conflicted -- but good -- relationships with," the 34-year-old Stewart admits. "I still have a paternalistic relationship with them but have no control over them, and I find them all incredibly attractive but they have really fucked up lives. It's mostly a song about being concerned for these people while admiring them a lot."

    General CommentThis song sort of frightens me. It sounds so passionate and intense. My favourite part is definetly 'although you're a solid pile of hate you're still pretty like a cake'.
