Story

(when my sister and i would yell and scream and fight with each other, my mom would say to us, "pretty girls have pretty voices"... in other words, BE QUIET. i think the difference between my mother's generation and my generation is that my generation is a lot more likely to say what we think and less likely to stuff our feelings. but sometimes those are hard lessons to learn.)

Lyrics

You…never liked…your ugly duckling
You never like me…without my…lipstick on
You…never like…my recollections where your memories 
Where you memories are…tread upon


You…never come…right out and tell me 
The scenic route has…always…been your way
But I’ve…been riding shotgun with you long enough to know 
Long enough to know what you mean when you say

Pretty girls…have pretty voices
Pretty girls…preserve their youth
Pretty girls…know all their choices
Pretty girls…don’t tell the truth

You…can teach a girl…to curtsy
Set a table…like her great grandmother did
You…can dress her up…in velvet
Neglect to tell her…all…the secrets you hid 

And love…love is not…the question
Cause if you wanted…you could love someone to death
Love…them straight into…the closet…afraid to draw
Afraid to draw…afraid to draw a breath

Pretty girls…have pretty voices
Pretty girls…preserve their youth
Pretty girls…know all their choices
Pretty girls…don’t tell the truth

Pretty girls…have pretty voices
Pretty girls…preserve their youth
Pretty girls…know all their choices
Pretty girls…don’t tell the truth
