about

A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
But,
on her lips hung
a smile of dove-secret loveliness,
for only that morning had not
the blind boy said,
'You are beautiful'?

-James Joyce

lyrics

You make me, you make me
Wanna take my long hair down
You broke me, you break me
You turned me around
You make me wanna
Take my long hair down

With perfumes, with potions
With all witchery
With whale spit, with roses,
With all poetry
You make me wanna take my long hair down

Don't say the right words to me
If you don't mean them, please let them be
Please give me something to hold onto
When I don't know where you've gone to

You ran your hands through it
You held me so close
You told me you loved me
Through the gin and the smoke

I could wrap it around you, or I could just hide away
From this light that surrounds you, every time you go away
You make me wanna take me long hair down

Please say the right words to me
Please give me any words that I can keep
Just one beat of your heart to hold onto
The part that I belong to

You make me, you make me
Wanna take my long hair down
You broke me, you break me- who are we now?
You make me wanna
Take my long hair down
