Pandora

.

She's the saddest thing on the dance floor

In black heels and a dress to match,

Parading around with her gilded crown,

Pretending the world can't bring her down.

But her bright eyes and perfect smiles can't fool me,

'Cause she's the saddest girl I've ever seen.

.

We're chasing carrots on sticks

Just to get a glimpse of the sweet life.

.

I'll sing to you, my Pandora,

A melody oh-so sincere

That you'll never get tired of hearing it.

Even though I know that

That smile of yours can break me,

I think I'll take a chance just for you.

.

She's dancing circles 'round my mind

With her beautiful smiles and her tired eyes.

There's no way she'll ever make it.

No, she was doomed from the start.

I'm watching her sway to a trashy song,

But she won't be standing for long…

.

We're only ever truly alive

Wrapped within each other's arms.

.

I'll sing to you, my Pandora,

A melody oh-so sincere

That you'll never get tired of hearing it.

Even though I know that

That smile of yours can break me,

I think I'll take a chance just for you.

.

Doesn't she know she can't hide her tears from me?

Doesn't she know I can cure her misery?

.

Oh Pandora, I'll sing this for you,

This melody so- so heartfelt

You will never get tired of hearing it,

No, no, you won't.

And even though I know that

That smile of yours can break me into

Bite-sized pieces,

I think I'll take the chance.

Yeah, I'm taking this chance just for you.
