Mandy Moore – Suddenly Seymour lyrics

Lift up your head
Wash off your mascara
Here, take my kleenex
Wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face
Clean as the mornin'
I know things were bad
But now they're ok

Suddenly, Seymour
Is standing beside you
You don't need no make-up
Don't have to pretend
Suddenly, Seymour
Is here to provide you
Sweet understanding
Seymour's your friend

Nobody, ever
Treated me kindly
Daddy left early
Mama was poor
I'd need a man, and I'd
Follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers, "Me?
I'd say, "sure."

Suddenly, Seymour
Is standing beside me
He don't give me orders
He don't condescend
Suddenly, Seymour
Is here to provide me
Sweet understanding
Seymour's my friend

Tell me this feeling
Lasts 'til forever.
Tell me the bad times
Are clean, washed away
Please understand that
It's still strange and frightening
For losers like I've been
It's so hard to say

Suddenly, Seymour
He purified me
Suddenly, Seymour
Showed me I can
Learn how to be more
The girl that's inside me
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
Seymour's my man
