Petals

Lyrics from my song Petals

By Holly Roberts

Petals strip the skin away
Until all that’s left is bare and good
And bare
She doesn’t want you to see inside
Where chaos grows impatiently

Her tickled pink reaction slips
Her eyes bore into you
Her high pitched giggle fades
Into the icy air

So fly
fly
There’s so much more in the world
For you to know
Without her

You hang upon her perfect hair
She stabs your chest with pointed shoes
Smiles sweetly and serene
You know
The game is bubbling underneath

And she’s keeping you awake at night
The thought of her, you can’t relax
And she’s keeping you afraid to see
She is not part of your life

What you wouldn’t give to bring her down
To the ground
Where they daisies grew before they
Lodged in her hair

So fly
fly
There’s so much more in the world
For you to know
Without her
