Snakesong Lyrics by An Pierlé

 

Snakesong by An Pierlé


Do the best things come first I was in two minds
So I tried my luck in the garden of dusk where the wise snake presides
How was I to know I'd be badly advised
Before I fell from the blistering sky with eyes opened wide

"so" said the snake, "what brings you to me"
He sizzled about lust and the small fare he'd charge as a favour to me
So warm was his breath but so cooling his skin
That I forgot every warning I got, my resistance grew thin
And he said, "soon, baby, soon, baby"

I guess you wonder
I guess you wonder

The best things come first, where was my mind
I should have known that a snake on a throne is bound to beguile

I guess you wonder
I guess you wonder

And the instant you left I knew what not to decide
And the instant you left I knew what not to decide
Lost my innocence due to my otherwise much revered pride
How stupid I was to rely on the snake's advice
