lyrics

Pearly,
white mystery appeared before my eyes
wriggling in the kitchen sink,
in and out the bowl of fresh-picked

berries
How suddenly I tried to flush them out
water wasn't strong enough;
I just pretended that it was


If you want it --
girl, go and get it
Pick the wound despite all that they say to you
What's there to lose
in making a move?

So, I washed my hands
and took a hearty bite


O, how!
I got!
so…


Finally,
the mystery appeared before my eyes
Hearing her play in the grass,
I took the marble from my hat to

bury
Alone, I dug a hole into the dirt
My heart wasn't strong enough;
I just pretended that it was


If you want it --
Girl, Go and Get It
even if the pain is undeniable
Moving to lose
is making a move

So, I packed my bags
and bought a ticket out

O, how!
I got!
so...


If you “get it,”
girl, do you want it?
Understanding and feeling are different
What’s there to lose
if you’ve already lost?

So, I took my seat
in the back of the car


O, how I got so small!
Like a wool in the wash!
