The Emperors New Clothes - Lyrics by Sinead Oconnor

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 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 the pregnancy can change you
I see plently of clothes that I like
But I won
ßt go anywhere nice from 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 say what's going on
They laugh 'cos they know they're untouchable
Not because what I said was wrong
Whatever it may bring
I will have my own policies
I will sleep with a clear concience
I will sleep in peace
Maybe it sounds mean
But I reallly 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.
