|Thanking Jingle for the award|
Away from the madness and the past.
You find a new job and with it, independence.
First day at work, your eyes spot him in the crowd.
He is incredibly handsome;
Incredibly out of your league.
But for some strange reason he spots you too.
And he'd like to fuck you!
He steals you away from the loaded work-table,
And takes you to an unmade, well-slept in bed.
Your head screams out all the things you saw in the mirror each day-
hideous, unattractive, rejected and always unwanted.
Before you question him-
'why do you want me?'
-He pretends that your curves are delectable
and your scars sexy.
His voice sounds like soft silken touch
as he moans your name gently into your ears.
And you ...
You shut out your screaming head,
Close your eyes tight,
And pretend he didn't talk to other girls like that.
