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

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

I wish I was quiet
And I 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 'til I was grown up
I cut my teeth upon his flesh
And watched him weeping as I left

I wish I was quiet
And I 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

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

No hands, keep them clean
Carry the load in your teeth
Make a mess when you speak
Keep you hands free to be held in between

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
