Lyrics

Beautiful but Damned

She spreads her legs just like a Bible,
seeking truth from any man.
Some say her reputation's shot oh, but even the Devil,
even the Devil is putty in her hands.
She knows every secret in the bedroom,
every fantasy unmasked.
With a combination this lethal,
a worn-out heart is bound to crash.
Sister, choose your lovers carefully,
your prisons and your plans.
If you don't, you'll be Beautiful but Damned.

Oh ya know, she liked her men
who downed their liquer like their ladies-
fast and clean, no questions asked.
She worked straight from the hips
and chased their egos without mercy
but her eyes were always sad.
Inside a part of her was dying
but she maintained her old-school charm.
Can't hide those wrinkles on your soul forever;
No bar-gloom glamour's gonna keep you young.
So choose your lovers carefully-
your prisons and your plans.
If you don't, you'll be Beautiful but Damned.

So who am I to judge?
Lord knows. I ain't no angel!
I got a thousand shadows in my soul.
I'm always falling for a twist of decadence,
and someone else's out-of-focus rainbow!
And now you tell me that you love me.
Aw baby, baby, I'll make it easy for you to say.
Deception's just so comfortable
when love is just a few white lies away.
Ain't nothing here I see worth quitting;
You know your stay never wears out its charm.
You got me hungry, yeah, you got me desperate.
In a head-space where we can do no wrong.
I choose my lovers carefully-
my prisons and my plans.
But darling, the way you make me feel-
I'd rather be Beautiful but Damned.
