Song Meaning
Verse 1
Father left
You were crushed
Like the petals of a flower
Between the pages of a novel
Verse 2
A long forgotten bookmark
The end of a sad chapter
When he left her she read no more
And so left all trust
Verse 3
Of any man that wants you
To dress in black plastic
Or sing with your eyes only
As though you were autistic
Verse 4
Whisper diamonds and insolence
Enter misadventure
Neither tawdry or resplendent
In clothes that hide your figure
Verse 5
She was daddy`s little sparrow
He was a dirty picture window
Mister Inappropriate
Who washes his hands after
Verse 6
He things someone is watching
Too restless for education
Craves only entertainment
And to this day
Verse 7
There is no one you trust
Father left your mom
They say you were crushed
Like the petals of a flower
Verse 8
Between pages of a novel
A long forgotten bookmark
