Pretty Girls Make Graves - The Smiths

words to study

Upon the sand, upon the bay

"There is a quick and easy way" you say

Before you illustrate

I'd rather state :

"I'm not the man you think I am

I'm not the man you think I am"

And Sorrow's native son

He will not smile for anyone

And Pretty Girls Make Graves

Oh ...

End of the pier, end of the bay

You tug my arm, and say : "Give in to lust,

Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll

Soon be dust ... "
