Idlewild – Apron Strings lyrics

Apron Strings
(Watt, Thorn)
Idlewild
Tracey Thorn - vocals, Ben Watt - guitar & vocals
Album: Everything But The Girl (1988)
Wea, Ltd. Sire Records, 25721-21

Apron strings hanging empty
Crazy things my body tells me
I want someone to tie to my apron strings
Apron strings waiting for you
Pretty things that I could call you
I want someone to tie to my lonely apron strings

Your baby looks just like you when you were young
And he looks at me with eyes that shine
And I wish that he were mine
Then I go home to my apron strings
Cold and loney, for time brings thoughts
That only will be quiet
When someone clings to my apron strings

And I'll be perfect in my own way
When you cry I will be there
I'll sing to you and comb your hair
All your troubles I will share
For apron strings can be used for other things
Than what they're meant for
And you'll be happy wrapped in my apron strings
You'll be happy wrapped in my apron strings.

~
