"Not Colored Too Perfect" by Matt Nathanson, which was released in 1997 and consists of 4 songs.
Am I pretty enough for you now that my ribs show through?
With a little makeup I can look brand new, but can I be pretty
Enough for you?
Fill me with secrets and I'll never tell
Fatten me up, and I'll feed you well
You can polish me perfectly and I'll shine pristine
But not even a cherub is this clean
Am I all that you d hoped that I would be, hanging on
To the words that I'm finding so hard to believe?
Well, it's late at night.
There's nobody around.
Just the sounds of the cars
Upon the asphalt ground.
It's the waiting time,
When the hours grow still.
I gaze on through the glass
Inside my windowsill.
Though I know that you must be
Somewhere in this world,
I recall your kisses and they tasted just like medicine
I put all the pieces back together in my head
Seems so obvious now how fragile a thing we had
And all the leaves were on the ground that fall, the leaves
Were all around
And you fed me stories and you polished up your bruises until
It kind of made me wish that I had a bruise so fine
I've watched you twice rebuild your life, why don't you wait up
You're smiling but I sense fear when you say, abandon ship
And there's land near
And the water is deep around my knees, but still I don't
At another time I would have followed you anywhere, but not
You said I was a shackle to you, well you always say the most
Violent things, my dear.
You're smiling as you climb into another idea of what it
Means to be you
