And You Washed Your Hands Clean of This

If it weren’t for your maturity none of this would have happened
If you weren’t so wise beyond your years I would’ve been able to control myself
If it weren’t for my attention you wouldn’t have been successful and
If it weren’t for me you would never have amounted to very much

Ooh this could be messy
But you don’t seem to mind
Ooh don’t go telling everybody
And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later
And no one knows except the both of us
And I have honored your request for silence
And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

You’re essentially an employee and I like you having to depend on me
You’re kind of my protege and one day you’ll say you learned all you know from
me
I know you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian
I know you sexualize me like a young thing would and I think I like it

Ooh this could get messy
But you don’t seem to mind
Ooh don’t go telling everybody
And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later
And no one knows except the both of us
I’ve more than honored your request for silence
And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

what part of our history’s reinvented and under rug swept?
what part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?
what with this distance it seems so obvious?

Just make sure you don’t tell on me especially to members of your family
We best keep this to ourselves and not tell any members of our inner posse
I wish I could tell the world cuz you’re such a pretty thing when you’re done
up properly
I might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm
body

Ooh this could be messy and
Ooh I don’t seem to mind
Ooh don’t go telling everybody
And overlook this supposed crime

    • I sure do. Eh. She is one of my faves. The song just spoke to me tonight. I heard it on the way home in my brand new Candy Blue the Burlesque Dancer car. Had to crank it up and sing away.

    • Me too. It’s one of my favorite songs by Alanis. I says so much about what some women go through just to keep a man. Secrets, lies, false promises, crazy diets, and body changes.

      • I feel sorry for the young girls of today (god that makes me sound ancient) because they are all trying to be so sexy.

      • I do too. It’s okay to just “be”. To be confident in your body and mind is the most sexy I think. But I too have issues with body image and the fact that I didn’t go to college. I have to remind myself all the time that I’m good enough.

  1. Hum, não tem problema, minha linda, também só te entendo com o tradutor, mas apesar do idioma, te acho o máximo, muito meiga, gentil e de muito bom gosto. Use e abuse das fotos, fico feliz de saber que se deleita com elas assim como eu no teu blog. Obrigada pelo carinho!

    Beijinhos da Perfume!

    • Eu acho que eles são lindos. Ah ser linda como seus modelos. Eu estou velho demais para isso. Mas amo a forma humana. Obrigado pelas suas amáveis palavras e devaneios de uma mulher boba como eu a seguir.

      Be aware I do not speak Portuguese. I am cheating with an online translator.🙂
