Lyrics

Worthless String of Pearls
I see you’re still breaking hearts
I see you’re still going strong
Still searching for the centre of
All night long
Well maybe it’s your crazy world
Taking pieces of all those girls
Well I won’t be another one
To be strung to your worthless set of pearls
Well I guess I had it coming dear
But the reason I keep coming here
Are for reasons that I can’t explain
You’re in my veins
I’m stepping off the Tilt-a-Whirl
And into the honest world
It’s funny how you can’t buy love
With a worthless string of pearls
We’ll chart a course and take it slow
We’ll ride it through the highs and lows
Let the wind take us where we go
Heaven only knows
I’ll hold my breath and close my eyes
And wish upon that big surprise:
Oh brush away those natural curls
Let’s see that string of pearls
I thought about you every night
Praying you’d both be alright
I’m sorry for the mess I made
I should have stayed
She asks about you everyday
She taught herself how to play
We all agree she daddy’s girl
Our little Pearl
We’ll chart a course and take it slow
Ride it through the highs and lows
Let the wind take us where we go
Heaven only knows
I’ll hold my breath and close my eyes
And wish upon that big surprise
Oh brush away those natural curls
Let’s see that string of pearls

I’ll hold my breath and close my eyes
And wish upon that big surprise

Oh brush away those natural curls
Let’s see that string of pearls

We’ll hold our breath and close our eyes
And wish upon that big surprise
We’ll brush away those natural curls
To see the string of pearls
