Pollyanne

Album: Blurring the Edges (1997)
  • Here we go again, same old argument
    You're callin' me Miss Pollyanne
    You see the world as cruel, and being mad is cool
    You think that I don't give a damn

    You don't have to shout to be heard
    Who said dark is deep
    You'd rather flip the bird
    I'd rather show you signs of peace
    Love ain't a dyin' art
    As far as I can see
    Oh, sentimental me

    Fist up in the air
    Mine used to be up there
    You only give yourself away
    Paint your roses black and blue
    Use the fuck word I can too
    When I have nothing else to say

    You don't have to shout to be heard
    Who said dark is deep
    You'd rather flip the bird
    I'd rather show you signs of peace
    Love ain't a dyin' art
    As far as I can see
    Oh, sentimental me

    Oh, sentimental me
    Sentimental me
    Here we go again
    We may never change
    So you can call me Pollyanne
