Beautiful And Lost

Ron Pope


Ballerina in a music box
With your pink shoes on
Satin ribbons in your hair
Dance to something
Soft and sweet
Ghost of a little girl
Who fell asleep there
Right beside me

You look so beautiful
And lost

But don't turn out
The light this time
Don't turn out
The light on me tonight

This is simple, this is new
That's why
I'm not scared of you
But you're afraid in ways
That I can't comprehend
I do not pretend
To live beneath
Your soft blonde hair
Inside your head
Wrapped up in darkness
Slow dancing with despair

You look so beautiful
And lost

But don't turn out
The light this time
Don't turn out
The light on me tonight
Don't turn out the light

Spinning harder now
You seem confused
I close my eyes
But I'm still
Watching you
If you're broken
I will gather up
Your pieces
From the filthy ground

But don't turn out
The light this time
Don't turn out
The light on me tonight
Don't turn out the light
You look so beautiful
And lost
You look so beautiful
And lost
