The Emperor's New Clothes
It seems like years since you held the baby While I wrecked the bedroom You said it was dangerous after Sunday And I knew you loved me He thinks I just became famous And that's what messed me up But he's wrong How could I possibly know what I want When I was only twenty-one? And there's millions of people To offer advice and say how I should be But they're twisted and they will never be Any influence on me But you will always be You will always be If I treated you mean I really didn't mean to But you know how it is And how a pregnancy can change you I see plenty of clothes that I like But I won't go anywhere nice for a while All I want to do is just sit here And write it all down and rest for a while I can't bear to be in another city One where you are not I would return to nothing without you If I'm your girlfriend or not Maybe I was mean But I really don't think so You asked if I'm scared And I said so Everyone can see what's going on They laugh 'cause they know they're untouchable Not because what I said was wrong Whatever it may bring I will live by my own policies I will sleep with a clear conscience I will sleep in peace Maybe it sounds mean But I really don't think so You asked for the truth and I told you Through their own words They will be exposed They've got a severe case of The emperor's new clothes The emperor's new clothes The emperor's new clothes The emperor's new clothes
