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
