Garbage: Cherry Lips

CHERRY LIPS
/Garbage/

She gave you everything she had
But she was young and dumb
She'd just turned twenty-one
She didn't care to hang around
So when the shit came down
Why she was nowhere to be found
This life can turn a good girl bad
She was the sweetest thing
That you had ever seen

[Chorus:]
You're such a delicate boy
In the hysterical realm
Of an emotional landslide
In physical terms

With your cherry lips and golden curls
You could make grown men gasp
When you'd go walking past them
In your hot pants and high heels
They could not believe
That such a body was for real
It seemed like rainbows would appear
Whenever you came near
The clouds would disappear
Because you looked just like a girl
Your baby blues would flash
And suddenly a spell was cast

[Chorus]

You hold a candle in your heart
You shine the light on hidden parts
You make the whole world wanna dance
You bought yourself a second chance

Go, baby, go go
We're right behind you
Go, baby, go go
Yeah we're looking at you
Go, baby, go go
Oh, we're right behind you
Go, baby
Go, baby
Yeah, we're right behind you
Go, baby
Go, baby
Oh, we're right behind you
Go, baby
Go, baby
Yeah, we're looking at you
Go, baby
Go, baby
Oh, we're right behind you
Go, baby
Go, baby
Yeah, we're looking at you

You hold a candle in your heart
Go, baby, go go
You shine the light on hidden parts
Go, baby, go go
You make the whole world wanna dance
Go, baby, go go
You bought yourself a second chance
Go, baby, go go

You're such a delicate boy
Go, baby, go go
In the hysterical realm
Go, baby, go go
Of an emotional landslide
Go, baby, go go
In physical terms
Go, baby, go go

Go
Yeah, we're lookin' at you
Go, baby, go go
Oh, we're right behind you
