Battered Broken

This song is by Jude and appears on the album No One Is Really Beautiful (1998).

Everything had to be exactly as you had planned it
Everything had to be exactly as you designed
The sadness inside you was lost on exactly no one
And there's nothing heroic or stoic in being a mime

Hey little girl is there room inside your world
For a groom without a pearl or a diamond on his mind
Did you think that for a second on the brink
That you could let me take a drink and bet that would not climb inside over my primly pride
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

See you walking down the hall kinda tall it isn't all like Bacall and
I'm gonna pucker up and blow you right out of the seams of your suits and the dreams will be roots for the teams in cahoots
My demons loving you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

There is only so much I can give without return and
Maybe a song
Maybe a few
Maybe not
Maybe, finally fuck it and just take a shot
And I battered, broken barely hoping remade token
I would crawl back to you and say thanks I needed that
It's been a while
I would crawl back to you and say thanks I needed that
It's been a while
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Smoother skinned than most she was and beautiful and just because I thought I'd be a doomsday gift I placed the rift
Callous first and cavalier dropping verses she could hear the sad refrain of inner pain
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I'm gonna grope I'm gonna grasp
'Cause I must
It's my rope and my ass and my doom for my lusting of you
Throw me a thin spider line, I'll be fine, as I climb the mine to my divine

Chorus (Repeat 3X)
