Matt Nathanson Somewhere To Hide Lyrics

She said “come along with me,

I’ve got offerings for you my sweet, sweet boy”

she promised warmth too, but I knew better

her words broke hot against my neck

and tasting the sweet, sweet numb of regret on my lips

I filled my pockets and closed the door

and I tasted all I’d left behind,

then shameful I crawled naked

Searching for somewhere to hide

And in the end she said it was memorable and comfortable

but funny, I wouldn’t have used those words

the secrecy and her bed, it was choking me with a knot in my gut

you have beautiful empty eyes, I’m sure of that much

Oh princess open your eyes and close your mouth

else all that spite you swallow willingly , it just might fall out

and I’ve seen you smile wide, I’ve seen you at your best

and it left me feeling sick inside and unimpressed

and I tasted all I’d left behind, but shameful I crawled naked

Searching for somewhere to hide
