Sophie B. Hawkins The Darkest Childe Lyrics

(You can do it baby… you know you can do it baby)

You were always the darkest childe

Making all the grown ups sweat

Driving both your parents to distraction

With the sweetness in your head

You’re the one who raped your superintendent

On the rooftop tied his hands and feet to the fence

You sucked his cock and fucked the man immobile

You paid your daddy’s rent

You are the darkest childe

You spread your angel wings

And fly through the night into the dreams of ancient ruins

And make them sing

Lost lover shameless girl

Bury me in your sultry curls

I’m in the wilderness alone

Let me kiss you until the dawn

Let me put your wilde things on

I’ve been howling in the fog so long

You are the darkest childe

You have a sacred duty to perform upon this blessed Earth

You must cradle those thoughts of the lustful lonely

Inside your wicked warmth

And you must

Get off

You are the darkest childe

And evil will never stop you

And people will mock you and try

To pop pop pop you into the market place where you cannot be bought

Understood you will be missed

There will be sadness

For the darkest childe

So long

So long to the darkest childe

Waiting in patient anguish

For the scent of someone’s wilderness

To howl against the smog screen

Of accolade smoothies

Goose bump burgers and Christ-like fries

How long can this world keep fucking itself up the ass

Wonders never cease

How long would it have to be

Anyway

Long enough to cause hysteria

Wide enough to cause great pain

I am in the wilderness alone

Oh god

Let me kiss you until the dawn

Let me put your wilde things on

I’ve been howling in the fog so long
