Little Hands Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Some sweet perversion
On the telephone line
I've been waiting for such a very long time
For her to be free
The evening was nice
But there were too many people
And all my thoughts so depraved and evil
Oh lord what would she say
Verse 2
(she says)
I'm afraid it's not to be
You're a sweet guy but you ain't for me
I live my life in a different way
You know those things you're thinking
Are a big mistake
Verse 3
We stayed out late 'til morning came
I said "I'll take you home
If its all the same"
Her indifference fills the room
Some weak seduction on the morning after
How it slays me every time I touch her
But she just wants to sleep
Verse 4
(she says:) How long 'til you understand
The last thing that I need is another man
Didn't you promise to give it a rest
Right now I need a lover
Like a hole, like a hole in the head
Verse 5
Oh well, can't blame a guy for tryin'
And I'm smiling even though I'm dying
To know the love she says will never be
Verse 6
One last conversation in the crowded bar
And even thought the music is louder by far
I hear every word she says
Verse 7
(she says)
Don't take it bad don't worry about it
You're a friend of mine and there's no way around it
Sometimes you there early sometimes you get there late
But even if you had a chance you never knew the game
Verse 8
Little hands, open smile
I'm glad we got to talk for a while
I feel O.K. yeah I'm feeling better
I'll let it go but I'll never say never
It's O.K. yeah, it's O.K.
