Everything But The Girl – Ugly Little Dreams lyrics

Frances keep your mouth shut dear
We don't want the neighbors 'round
With their ugly little schemes
That make the pretty world go 'round
And there's a place in it for every one of us
I'll keep the home fires burning
Only don't make a fuss

And if you're not impressed
With the wares life has to show
You can take them or leave them
They choose their own fare who say no
There's some ugly little dreams
For pretty girls to buy
It's enough to make you mad
But it's safer just to break down and cry

It's a battlefield Frances
You fight or concede
Victory to the enemy
Who call your strength insanity

What chance for such girls
How can we compete?
In a world that likes it's women
Stupid and sweet

I bet you rue the day
The angels gave you your share
Of bright cornflower blue eyes
And golden hair
And there's a lot of ugly little dreams
For pretty girls to buy
It's enough to make you mad
But it's safer just to break down and cry
It's safer just to break down and cry

    Ugly Little Dreams is a reminder to all of us of just how ineffective human conditioning is. No wonder were all going nuts - trying to be something that we are not. We are taught to say and do this, and to look and act like this, and to own and desire this, etc, etc. And then when you think others seem to have it all, you realise just how damn miserable they are - the proverbial "money doesn't buy happiness" situ. Brilliant lyrics.
