Little Shop Of Horrors – Suddenly Seymour lyrics

Suddenly Seymour

Lift up your head
Wash off your mascara
Here take my Kleenex
Wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face
Clean as the morning
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 meet a man and I'd follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers, me
I'd said 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 till forever
Tell me the bad times are clean washed away

Please understand that it's still strange and frightened
For losers like I've been, it's so hard to say

Suddenly Seymour, he purified me

(Seymour et al.)
He purified you

Suddenly Seymour showed me I can learn how to be more

The girl that's inside me/you
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
With sweet understanding
Seymour's your man
