Beekeeper's Daughter

Album: Kids in the Street (2012)
  • I've been known a thousand ways
    Choked a hundred hearts in half as many days
    Oh no, I think so

    And I get so lost inside this city
    You ugly girls all look so pretty, it's true
    What am I supposed to do?

    I still got you away
    Look out your window
    What do you see?
    You don't see me

    You're a pretty little flower
    I'm a busy little bee
    Honey, that's all you need to see
    I can take you for an hour
    But then I'm gonna leave
    Honey I know you'll wait for me

    You're all alone but you understand
    That we're too young to start making plans of green
    Monogamy's not a part of me

    And I know my line and is just a sin
    When I swear to you I'm gonna do it again
    I'm not making any friends

    I just wanted you to wait
    There out your window
    What do you see?
    You don't see me

    Cause you're a pretty little flower
    But I'm a busy little bee
    Honey, that's all you need to see
    I can take you for an hour
    Baby then I'm gonna leave
    Honey I know you'll wait for me

    Pulled out your picture the other day
    (Isn't that sweet?)
    You didn't have that much to say
    (Cause you wouldn't even leave)
    'Cause I know that you said
    I'm better of on my own and I'm better off dead

    I just want you there to wait
    Look out your window
    What do you see?
    You don't see me

    Come on, come on, come on
    Dirty little flower
    I'm a busy little bee
    Honey that's all you need to see
    I can take you for an hour
    Maybe two or maybe three
    Honey, I know you'll wait for me

    Honey, that's all it has to beWriter/s: NICK WHEELER, TYSON RITTER
