The Pocket Knife Lyrics

Pocket Knife - PJ Harvey


Please don't make my wedding dress


I'm too young to marry yet


Can you see my pocket knife


You can't make me be a wife


How the world just turns and turns


How does anybody learn


Mummy put your needle down


How did you feel when you were young


Cos I feel like I've just been born


Even though I'm getting on


How the world slips by so fast


How does anybody last


As the world keeps coming

And the bees keep humming

And I'll keep running


Flowers I can do without


I don't wanna be tied down


White material will stain


My pocket knife's gotta shiny blade


I'm not trying to cause a fuss


I just wanna make my own f**k-ups


I'm not trying to break your heart


I'm just trying not to fall apart
