Clever Lovely Thing

Penni Jo

Lyrics

Hey bring your long legs over here

You're the wildest thing

I've seen in forever

In a cloud you could disappear

So sleek, so clever

Do that trick with the bottle again

You're fascinating

I just can't stop watching you

So we meet at the bitter end

You've found me waiting

I can't think of anything I'd rather do

Babe I'm your rock

I don't need

Freedom to breathe

Cover me up

I will only

Be relieved

Clever lovely thing

Build your world on me

I saw the way he loved you

Because you were so colorful and agile

But now you need a hiding place

Cause your body made you fragile

I've rolled all the way down here

In the inky cold

Can I comfort your softer side?

And if you get swept away

Let me be so bold

Come back, come back,

I've no pride

Babe I'm your rock

I don't need

Freedom to breathe

Cover me up

I will only

Be relieved

Clever lovely thing

Build your world on me

Be too smart for me

Confound me with your mystery

Solve the problems of the world

I will quietly agree

Surprise me with your life

Seal my mouth and crawl inside

Broken glass, bottle caps

I'm along for the ride

Scratch me up and grind me down

Find the sun, push me around

Spill your heart on my floor

I'm so happy to be found

When your children are born

When your limbs are wrecked and torn

Cover me face down

I'll mourn, I'll mourn

So clever, my clever lovely thing

So clever, clever lovely thing

Oh, my clever lovely thing

Build your world on me

Babe I'm your rock

I don't need

Freedom to breathe

Cover me up

I will only

Be relieved

Clever lovely thing

Build your world on me

For every mood
