Should've Kept My Eyes Shut - Beautiful South

 

Written by:Paul Heaton/Dave Rotheray

 

I should've kept my eyes shut

 

But I had to go and peep

 

But when you saw what I saw

Well it's hard just to roll back to sleep

I would've kept my eyes shut

 

But I thought I heard you scream

 

And I've a penchant for violence

You don't seem to find in a dream

 

The scene a little clearer

 

My father with a rope

 

And in the cage centre stage

It's mother who's destined to choke

 

And she choke and we choke

On the words that we wish we'd not spoke

 

Just when you felt you had someone to trust

How come the mama the darker and close

 

I should've read the novels

 

Believed every word

 

But the stories they wrote

Were so different to ones that I'd heard

 

I should've kept my eyes shut

 

My mouth should've closed

 

But the mixture of vomit and blood

Just crept up through my nose

 

It became a little clearer

 

As soon as I awoke

 

My father stands with rope in hand

 

A screaming mother kneels in hope

And she hope and we hope

 

That me words that she said won't provoke

 

A smile is removed and a petal is crushed

What once was a laugh has turned into a joke

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut

You should've kept your mouth shut

 

You should've kept your mouth shut
