lyrics

Ophelia

Ophelia sweetheart come sit down there are important things I have to say
I know you love him honey but you can’t let him treat you this way
when a man calls you a whore go on and find the closest door and walk out
go home maybe take a cold shower but baby don’t let him make you crazy

Well I heard you singing bawdy songs you’re howling at the moon
don’t even think of going swimming ’til you’ve leveled out your moods
you might have a hard time until you find someone new
but you’re a clever girl I know that there’s a better man for you

I know that you decided you’re in love I can see it in your eyes
and logical thinking and reason can fall by the wayside
so pay attention hey I wouldn’t lead you astray
this won’t end well if you keep moving this way and baby don’t let him make you crazy

Well I heard you singing bawdy songs you’re howling at the moon
don’t even think of going swimming ’til you’ve leveled out your moods
you might have a hard time until you find someone new
but you’re a clever girl I know that there’s a better man for you

So take a deep breath Ophelia take a deep breath
you know it isn’t that bad, no it isn’t that bad
go on and take a deep breath Ophelia take a deep breath
you know it isn’t that bad, it isn’t that bad

Ophelia sweetheart come sit down there are important things I have to say
I know you love him honey but you can’t let him treat you this way
I don’t know if it’s to be or not it hasn’t happened yet
but honey didn’t you read Romeo and Juliet
when things start getting messy you better keep a level head
and baby don’t let him make you crazy
