W. H. Lung – Pearl in the Palm Lyrics

There is not much worse could be done to me, than lonely love, lonely love
This could this be the verse ignominy festers inside of
Johan Strauss in the closet composes a waltz

As the saying goes, I feel like a tethered dove with a broken nose, you know
As the saying goes, I feel like I’m close enough to hear the very grass grow, you
know, you know, you know, you know, hey!

I lost, I lost, I lost
And no one won

Champagne for everybody here and real pain for everybody else
Sally said, ‘everything is happening here, right now, it’s all misery and suffering in all
else’
‘It’s true,’ she said, ‘I read it’

As the saying goes, I feel like a tethered dove with a broken nose, you know
As the saying goes, I feel like I’m close enough to hear the very grass grow, you know, you know, you know, you know, hey!

Supermarket doors kiss the air all day all night
A ruffle in the curtains up above, I watch on
Like a pearl in the palm, my dear, a pearl in the palm
It was all that I could do to hold on, hold on

I lost, I lost, I lost
And no one won
