The Emperor's New Clothes Lyrics

The Emperor's New Clothes by Oconnor Sinead  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Emperor's New Clothes It seems like years since you held the baby
while I wrecked the bedroom
you said it was dangerous after sunday
and I knew you loved me
he thinks I just became famous
and that's what messed me up
but he's wrong
how could I possibly know what I want
when I was only twenty-one?
and there's millions of people
to offer advice and say how I should be
but they're twisted
and they will never be any influence on me
but you will always be
you will always be

if I treated you mean
I really didn't mean to
but you know how it is
and how a pregnancy can change you

I see plenty of clothes that I like
but I won't go anywhere nice for a while
all I want to do is just sit here
and write it all down and rest for a while
I can't bear to be in another city
one where you are not
I would return to nothing without you
if I'm your girlfriend of not

maybe I was mean
but I really don't think so
you asked if I'm scared
and I said so

everyone can see what's going on
they laugh 'cos they know they're untouchable
not because what I said was wrong
whatever it may bring
I will have my own policies
I will sleep with a clear conscience
I will sleep in peace

maybe it sounds mean
but I really don't think so
you asked for the truth and I told you
through they're own words
they will be exposed
they've got a severe case of
the emperor's new clothes.
