From the moment we met
From the moment we met I knew you were mine
So, like everything else special to me,
So, like everything else special to me, I wrapped you up in bubble wrap
and put you in the attic.
Shhhhhh hhhhhhhh hhhhhhhh hhhhhhhh
Don't make a sound
Mama can't hear you cry
Mama won't sing you a lullaby
Every word your mama told you was a lie
Mama wished you would die.
Dancing with your hands tied,
Dancing with your hands tied, blinded.
Nothing can see your beauty, not even you can love yourself now...
'cause love is blind, they say,
You're no different.
But I treat you well,
You're my princess in my castle,
'cause my baby sleeps in my king- size bed
all by herself
I love her that much, while I take a Queen.
I promised her a cardboard palace,
I promised her a cardboard palace, a cardboard house,
I promised her a cardboard palace, a cardboard house, a cardboard box.
Big enough for her, so I leave her alone.
Stay with me, baby girl, like you always do.
Let me have my freedom, girl, knowing you are always true.
Moonlights pass, as you grow, but soon you're no longer new.
I leave you there,
Hang on babe, As you always do.
