The Pierces

The Pierces are an American New York-based band consisting of sisters Allison Margaret Pierce (born July 23, 1975) and Catherine Eleanor Pierce (born September 11, 1977). more »

We'd be so less fragile
If we're made from metal
And our hearts from iron
And our minds from steel

And if we built an army
Full of tender bodies
Could we love each other?
Would we stop to feel?

And you want three wishes
One to fly the heavens, one to swim like fishes
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You say you want to know her like a lover
And undo her damage, she'll be new again
Soon you'll find that if you try to save her
It will lose her anger, you will never win

And you want three wishes
You want never bitter and all delicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You want three wishes
One to fly the heavens, one to swim like fishes
You want never bitter and all delicious
And a clean conscience and all it's blisses
You want one true lover with a thousand kisses

You want soft and gentle and never vicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away
