Once I held the sweetest heart
I cut my teeth upon his love
All I know now I learned back when
His mouth would start where mine would end.

I had to hold the kindest love
I held my breath for mine to stop
I won't turn blue that way again
In truth, still waiting for the end.

Oh, oh -ah oh ah, oh oh
Oh, oh ah oh ah, oh oh

Wish I was quiet,
Wish I was mean
But I can't keep my mouth shut
And I keep coming clean

I wish I was quiet,
And wish I was mean,
But I can't keep my mouth shut
And I keep calm, and I keep calm,
And I keep coming clean.

I had to keep the softest touch
I held it till I was grown numb
I cut my teeth upon his flesh
And watched him weeping as I left.

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

Wish I was quiet,
And wish I was mean
But can't keep my mouth shut
And I keep calm, and I keep calm,
And I keep coming clean.

No hands, no hands,
Carry the love like a flag
Hold it up above your head
So they see you coming.

Your hands, keep them clean
Carry the love in your teeth.
Make a mess when you speak
Keep you hands free to be held in between.

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

I made him stay because I could.
I cut my teeth on his good looks.
I'll do from now on as I should
And trade that he learn to be good,
Good, good, good, good, good.
