lyrics

Don't Lose Your Beauty (Leger)
Don't lose your beauty
In the unfair clouds of uncertainty
Where models of attention
Powder their faces
And sustain their timbre
I'll be looking at only you
Across the way
In your red and silk

Don't lose your beauty
When under attack
Stirring the sugar
Drinking from the dollar store mug
Eyes through the morning window
Bouncing off of the air
Feeling everything around
You leave without a smile for tuesday

Don't lose your beauty
As war ravishes the memories
Of boyhood and his love for your eyelashes
Sacrifice steals the spaces
Poetry makes this romantic
Crows fill it with mystery
And what to do with your tears
Where to find you in your heaven

DOn't lose your beauty
Even when it sounds like New York our there
But it looks like a movie set
As I walk I hear the sound
Of buzzing fluorescence
And greedy observations
Dictators and reciters
Someone is breathing down your dress

Don't lose your beauty
While the years change your looks
The devil xomes around
To laugh at what we lose
What we lose in ourselves
The candy tastes better
After the compliment
The wedding dance is eaten by the wolf
The child is left on the doorstep
For vultures or the compassionate

Don't lose your beauty
to the empty girl
And the nervous smoke
She's naked for the attention
But closes up in the darkness
A ballroom pin up
She's scattered and shuffled
You sway along the old oak boards
Commanding and enchanting
I want you
I need you

Don't lose your beauty
As the doubt kills some of the beauty
SOme of the days
You can't remember now
But I loved those days
Stealing fruit from the castles
Your hair done up high
On New Year's Eve
Your face happy in the end of the year
Don't lose that happiness
