The Emperors New Clothes - Lyrics by Sinead O'connor


Lyrics

(sinead o'connor)

It seems like years since you held the baby
While i wrecked the bedroom
You said it was dangerous after sunday
And i knew you loved me
He thinks i just became famous
And that's what messed me up
But he's wrong
How could i possibly know what i want
When i was only twenty-one?
And there's millions of people
To offer advice and say how i should be
But they're twisted
And they will never be any influence on me
But you will always be
You will always be

If i treated you mean
I really didn't mean to
But you know how it is
And how a pregnancy can change you

I see plenty of clothes that i like
But i won't go anywhere nice for a while
All i want to do is just sit here
And write it all down and rest for a while
I can't bear to be in another city
One where you are not
I would return to nothing without you
If i'm your girlfriend or not

Maybe i was mean
But i really don't think so
You asked if i'm scared
And i said so

Everyone can see what's going on
They laugh `cause they know they're untouchable
Not because what i said was wrong
Whatever it may bring
I will live by my own policies
I will sleep with a clear conscience
I will sleep in peace

Maybe it sounds mean
But i really don't think so
You asked for the truth and i told you

Through their own words
They will be exposed
They've got a severe case of
The emperor's new clothes
The emperor's new clothes
The emperor's new clothes
The emperor's new clothes
