There's no loving after
All the squirm, we've been through it
I've not come up back to you
Pretty boyish smile
Planting in my spine
Don't get a hold on me
Is a time
We're meant to be free

No hurt
Only birth
Only birth
No hurt
Only worth
Only worth

Didn't do exactly what you told me
When you scold me
Leads me to implore the
Golden hole which was
Surely given to make
Beautiful children
And push and push and push
And out slides the golden baby
With my stark hair
Eating men like thin air
Not your eyes
Just the beating of a Plath heart
Shooting in the wet dark
I poke and turn
You smoke and yearn

Take me my darling for
I've been waiting so long
For you to come

Take me my darling for
I've been waiting so long
For you to come

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure the line "and beating in like thin air" is actually "and eating men like thin air", which is a reference to the final line of Sylvia Plath's poem 'Lady Lazarus'.

    Lyric CorrectionThere’s no loving after all the squirm we’ve been through

    I’ve not come back to you

    Pretty boyish smile

    Planting in my spine

    Don’t get a hold on me

    It’s a time we’re meant to be free

    No hurt only Birth

    No hurt only Worth

    Didn’t do exactly what you told me

    When you scold me it leads me to implore the

    Golden Hole

    Which was surely given

    To make beautiful children

    And push and push and push and push

    Then out slides the Golden Baby

    With my stark hair

    Eating men like then air

    Not your eyes just the beating of a Plath Heart

    Shooting in the wet dark

    I poke and turn you smoke and yearn
