Pretty Young Things

by No Need For A Name   Jul 8, 2009


Jack got tipped in the pouring rain
With a kiss on the lips and a need to restrain
Himself from this
Her dirty kiss
The taste of her face
And the grind of her hips

Stop right here
Stop right now
Before you end up underground
Stop right here
Stop right now
Young girl you're taking you're last bow

So go out and make a dollar more
Spend it lying on the bathroom floor
With blue stained lips and bloodshot eyes
Syringes, razors, ties that bind
So tonight go out onto the streets
Tomorrow heavy eyes will sleep
Waiting for love in liquid form
Injected to your heart for warmth

A pretty young thing walked up to him
For the right price she would let him in
On her secret
Hinting a kiss
The taste of her face
And the grind of her hips

The taste of her face and the grind of her hips

So go out and make a dollar more
Spend it lying on the bathroom floor
With blue stained lips and bloodshot eyes
Syringes, razors, ties that bind
So tonight go out onto the streets
Tomorrow heavy eyes will sleep
Waiting for love in liquid form
Injected to your heart for warmth

So this is your stage
You are the star
Performing your acts
And chilling your heart
Your heart of stone
Your face so sad
Your skin so cold
Your life, your end

So go out and make a dollar more
Spend it lying on the bathroom floor
With blue stained lips and bloodshot eyes
Syringes, razors, ties that bind
So tonight go out onto the streets
Tomorrow heavy eyes will sleep
Waiting for love in liquid form
Injected to your heart for warmth

    Reading it, things flowed well... singing it, there were some lines that didn't flow off the tounge as nicely. overall it was a wonderfully written poem. good work.
