The Blackest Lily

  • I didn't know the day was
    I didn't know what the time it was
    I didn't know what my heart would do
    I was afraid of nothing when you called me on the telephone

    I was a creature of appetites
    And we played a game that you didn't like
    There wasn't nothing that I could do
    I can be so bad
    I can be so bad
    They just took it away and they broke it in two

    Color my heart
    Color my heart
    Make it restart
    Make it restart
    Color my heart
    I want it more than I ever knew

    The blackest lily
    The blackest pony
    Won't protect my heart from you

    You were unnercingly delicate
    And I had a weakness for etiquette
    You laid a trail that led straight to your door
    And I could resist but it was hard to ignore
