she won’t go lyrics – happy rhodes

after all the pleading
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t go
it’s the best thing, really

everything will seem quiet for a time
a normal girl with a normal frame of mind
then there she is, a-stompin’ her feet
she’s screaming that her soul is incomplete

now

after all the pleading
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t go

she won’t – never will – isn’t gonna go a-
she won’t – never will – isn’t gonna go a-
she won’t – never will – isn’t gonna go
away

there was talk of letting her die
sweet little devil
poor little thing
it couldn’t work with her gone
we’ve been without parents for too long
now here’s a kid who knows what she needs
she wants a kiss for every place she bleeds

now

after all the pleading
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t go

i’ve asked her politely but
she won’t – never will – isn’t gonna go away
she won’t – never will – isn’t gonna go away

she won’t go anywhere anytime soon
who’s gonna keep your full moon blue
who’s gonna keep your full moon blue

i tried to show her the way to have her say
she’d rather brood or throw tantrums in my brain
i think i’d better grow accustomed to her
i guess we’ll always be the bigger me and little her

now

after all the pleading
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t go
i’ve asked her politely but
she won’t – never will – isn’t going to go away
is this the best thing really?

after all the pleading
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t go
it’s the best thing, really
she won’t – never will – isn’t going to go away
