petals lyrics – hole

shes the angel on top of the tree
sugarheart, here she comes
shes going to fall on me

innocence was our fire
we told the truth
i miss the sweet boys
in the summer of their youth

tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you

they will make you so
so cynical
the fire burns, the flesh destorys
the past that made us old

shes the grace of this world
shes too pure
for the likes of this world
this world is a wh*r*

tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you

i wait till mine and
hey, its all mine
hey, its all mine
never knew what i could be
all the darling buds of may
they fall with no sound
they carry you down
they carry you down
ooooooooo, ooooooh
ooooooooo

all the lillies bloomed and blossomed
wilted and theyre shivering
i cant stop their withering,
oh, this world is a war

tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you

tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you

tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
tear the petals off of you
make you tell the truth
tear the petals off of you
