Beat and broken
Fought him, fought him on my own
Stop and wait
Stop and wait
I lie alone

Wrote you, over
The same line, over
I will not fight
The same complaint
Heart skip around my bones

Drop me, broken
Fought him, then asked her whats my name
Stop and wait
Stop and wait
I ran away

Wrote you, over
The same line, over
I will not fight
The same complaint
Stop, skip around my bones

    General CommentI think it's "beaten, broken" but that's a bit of a nitpick as it means the same thing anyway. Also I always thought it was "Fought him, the master wants my name", but "asked her what's" also seems to fit on relistening so I dunno. And the last bit of the second verse is "Sing, and play / Hop and skip around my bones", although in verse four it's hop and skip around something else I can't really make out. There's an "f" sound in there somewhere and that's about all I can decipher. Fur?

    And here's what I can make out of the spoken-wordy-poetry bit at the end:
    "A sunflower jar full of idle dreams he had
    The land of tears was so mysterious to her she said
    His lonely head inhabits all the love he has
    [???] she collects the sound of butterflies

    Melting snow beside a river only he will know
    That whisper of cold air through the face of [???]
    Through mythical measures they come together and understand
    That the place for them is kicking leaves in the [???]

    Now the seashell artist creates another masterpiece
    Reflecting jealous danger love can't see
    A trinket box which holds the key
    To the seashell artist, we thank thee."

    General CommentThese are the lyrics for the end of Pretty in a Panic, my dad knows one of the guys from My Latest Novel & they got Laura (the girl who's speaking at the end) to confirm these are correct! Enjoy!

    A sunflower jar full of idle dreams he had
    The land of tears is so mysterious to her she said
    His lonely head inhabits all the love he has
    whilst the charming she collects the sound of butterflies

    Melting snow beside a river only he will know
    That whisper of cold air through the face and hair is hers
    Through mythical measures they come together and understand
    That the place for them is kicking leaves in the cobbled lanes

    Now the sea shell artist makes another masterpiece
    Reflecting jealous danger that love can't see
    A trinket box which holds the key
    To the sea shell artist, we thank thee
