lyrics

Peeling Onions

Remember when we split up
And your parents became evil
Like the very worse of everything you were
Living Larkin’s words
Maybe they were evil all along
Wrong like Darth Vader wrong

Remember when we split up
And cut our favourite books in half
Just like Solomon’s words, all good was cut in two
Living biblical words
Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth
Leaving blind gummy smiles to go on with

Peeling onions used to make me cry
Now I’ve got other reasons why
Peeling onions used to make my cry
Now I’ve got other things in my eye

It’s not a twinkle yet
It’s not a wink
Or even an accidental sultry blink
And yes I may have had a drink
A little blurry to think straight
I’m not looking for a soul mate
Take what you see

Peeling onions used to make me cry
Now I’ve got other reasons why
Peeling onions used to make my cry
Now I’ve got other things in my eye
