Dear Henry 05:09
The day was long, the hours many when we crossed the county line. You said "be still, my one and only, and I will make you, make you mine." Dear Henry, I am so contrary, I know not what goes through your head, for if we two should ever marry, my father he will shoot you dead. Lucy, my dear I will confess I did it well, he made no sound. Your father dear can never harm us from six feet underneath the ground. Dear Henry, now what have you done! My heart has just been split in two. You've killed a man whose only daughter was cursed to love the likes of you. Lucy, my dear, I judged you wrong you are not what my heart did seek. This silver blade will not take long, come near and bend your blushing cheek.
Brick Eyes 04:49
My Young Man 04:32
Recipe 02:49
First take a cup of the sweetest song mix it with apathy blend in a pinch of right turned wrong that's what you are to me. Overdone, it's too long, you said it to me, "never not be no one, but keep good company". Rather not be so tired, reason out the moment when did you become inspired to give out false compliments.
