only in the morning lyrics – venetia fair

she’s alone if only in the morning
for all her learned morality
she keeps her line drawn far beyond the innocent flirtation
a reputation for quenching every thirst for free.

my mother thinks the last one never loved me
the wisdom’s stark simplicity was easy to ignore
before i heard a few more stories
and they destroyed me
i scratched the surface ’til it bled

i shed my skin
when i got burned
i reached for the stove but i never learned
promise me, that you’re not her
and i can try to believe it
but i’ve seen things that i can’t forget

i could barely stomach her affection
and with my stoic brevity
i never made it past her plastic p*rnographic accent
and i accept that
she paid to board a sinking ship
and now she’s drowning thanks to me

just a lonely girl that never learned to swim

and i know it’s done
’cause she’s the only one who brought me back to sh*r*
and she’s scared
that i would drown before i ever let this go

i finally learn to swim

she’s alone if only in the morning
for all her learned morality
she crossed that line for me.

i’ve seen some things i may never find a way to forget
