"Little face" as written by and Ian Robert/duffy Astbury....
Her voice cut like a razor
A rose petal with summery eyes
You beautiful flame girl screamer
Seducer of the non-believers

Little face, they cut you down
They push your face into the ground
Oh little face, they cut you down
They push your face into the ground

Princess, but no virgin
A butterfly burnt by flame
She fluttered with her life
She stood outside till the winter came

Little face, they cut you down
They push your face into the ground
Oh little face, they cut you down
They push your face into the ground

And everyday they pull it tighter
The barbed wire wrapped around her heart
Yeah, everyday they pull it tighter
The barbed wire wrapped around her heart, oh, oh, oh

Her voice cut like a razor
A rose petal with summery eyes
Oh, beautiful flame girl screamer
Sweet seducer of the non-believers, oh yeah

Little face, they pushed you down
They push your face into the ground
Oh little face, they cut you down
They push your face into the ground

And everyday they pull it tighter
The barbed wire wrapped around her heart
Everyday they pull it tighter
The barbed wire wrapped around her heart, oh, oh, oh

Little face
Little face
Seducer of the non-believers
Little face
Little face
Little face

    General CommentI'm giving this song a comment because I love it! Especially the chorus. The guitar riff is neat too. Seems to be about a female, maybe a singer, beaten down by some sort of dark forces.

    The kind of song that really makes you feel like something is happening, so rare nowadays that.
