Pete Doherty – A Little Death Around The Eyes lyrics

A little death around the eyes
Your boyfriend's name was Dave
I was bold and brave
And now you're mine

You cook and clean and sew
When I tell you to, when I ask you to,
If I ask you to,
But I don't want you to...

You don't need tellin' twice with me,
You don't need tellin' twice
You know who wears the trousers
No one wears the trousers
In a nutshell
To break free,
Ya well, you'll never have break free of me

Your boyfriend's name was Dave
I was bold and brave
And now you're mine

You cook and clean and sew
When I tell you to
Dance and screw when I want you to
In a hotel room you take your medicine
On all fours, that's your medicine
Feeling better son?
Filling in the cracks
In a nutshell
Feeling any better now?
Wish upon a star...

Some vague idea of the man you used to be
Oh the man you used to me

(Filling in the cracks)
Fe fi foe thumb
I smell the blood of an englishman
Be he alive or be he dead
(Filling in the cracks)
Wish upon a star

A little death around the eyes...
