Regina Spektor – Pound Of Flesh lyrics

If you're never sorry
Then you can't be forgiven
If you're not forgiven
Then you can't be forgotten

If you're not forgotten
Then you can live forever
If you live forever
Then you'll begin to dream of death

Ezra Pound sat upon my bed
Asked me which books as of late I've read
Ezra Pound sat upon my bed
Asked me which books as of late I've read

Asked me if I've read his own
And whether I could spare
A pound of flesh to cover his bare bones

I says, man, take a pound, take two
What's a pound of flesh
Between friends like me and you?
What's a pound of flesh among friends?

But if you're never sorry

If you're never sorry
Then you can't be forgiven
If you're not forgiven
Then you can't be forgotten

If you're not forgotten
Then you must live forever
If you live forever
You cannot be reborn

If you're not reborn
Then you can't be a baby
If you're not a baby
You can't learn how to crawl

If you cannot crawl away
Then you must stay in bed all day
If you stay in bed all day
You're sure to have some visitors

Ezra Pound'll sit upon your bed
Ask you which books as of late you have read

Ask you if you've read his own
And whether you could spare
A pound of flesh to cover his bare bones

You'll say, man, take a pound, take two
What's a pound of flesh
Between friends like me and you?
What's a pound of flesh among friends?
