letra de everything wrong - martha wainwright


everything wrong

i do most everything wrong
even on the day you were born
my husband’s been lyin’ and cheatin’
i turned my cheek and reason
i change my tune every day

there is one thing i want you to be
that is smarter than me
if things, they don’t seem right,
open your wings and take flight
don’t stick around the watch the pieces fall

i don’t want you to feel alone
but you probably will, when you are older
i will try to stay alive
to see as much through your eyes
but one day you know i will go

don’t listen too much to what i say
making sense has never been my way
i can teach you 1,2,3
i can dance with you on repeat
i can hold your hand forever
na, na, na…
i can do so much,
but you can do so much more

i am only a stepping stone
for you to get where you must go
and there is nowhere i would rather be,
so put your weight on me
na, na, na…

i am your protector
i am not your pretender
i will try
i will not lie
i will not cry too much in front of you

i have been really, really sad,
except for having you with your dad
