 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

She was full of lies and boredom 
It came as no surprise that she would cheat 
Her nails were long and sharp 
But she didn't play the harp 
She wasn't an angel I told her 
But she wasn't able to understand my words 
Rich pickings in reverse 
I wasn't Shakespeare 
It's simple 
Did she expect me 
To kiss her feet 

A very acidic tongue 
Waggled in her head 
Life was lots of fun 
At times I had to smile 
In front of everyone 
We seemed the best of friends 
Life had just begun 
When on the roof a tile began to slip 
The house of love caved in and that was it 

She was full of tears by nature 
It came to me so clear that she would creep 
Her eyes were stale and spun 
Like marbles in the sun 
She wasn't a princess I told her 
And so I witnessed the slaying of my life 
That lasted half the night 

I wasn't Jesus 
Believe me 
Our love was seedless 
And incomplete
