Heel

HEEL Lyrics © Gayna Rose Madder

 

(Let me tell you about my Achilles…)

I have a he I thought was here to stay

But he makes my G-force drain away;

His pull is strong but his push is weak;

So he’s uphill work, but he’s got no peak;

 

He’s strong like seeds, but it’s a shellfish strength

It hides a soft inside from others

His loving needs demand the selfish lengths

Guaranteed by doting mothers;

 

I know he’s no good for me;

But knowing you’re cut doesn’t say you don’t bleed;

I know he’s no good for me;

But what he offers me, I can’t say I don’t need.

 

I thought by now that I’d have learned

That good earns no credit where he is concerned;

So I pour and pour, and wait for when;

But then I lick my wounds and start again;

 

I know he’s no good for me;

But knowing you’re cut doesn’t say you don’t bleed;

I know he’s no good for me;

But what he offers me, I can’t say I don’t need.

 

He’s both more and less than meets the eye

And as he pulls me in, I neither live or die…

 

I know he’s no good for me;

But knowing you’re cut doesn’t say you don’t bleed;

I know he’s no good for me;

But what he offers me, I can’t say I don’t need.
