The Pierces

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
