Beautiful boy, tell me your secrets,
And I will tell you my lies
we hold each other on the floor
desperately grasping,
desperately search for something
but don't make meyour inspiration,
I don't want to be your muse.

I ainít your mother,
go back home for one of those.
I ainít your lover,
Iíve got on too many clothes.

Sing me a song about Josephine,
tell me all about the world
with the tangerines,
you want to be in love with her
but she's just a song to me,
she's just one more lie in my life,
whispers on a piece of paper.

I ainít your mother,
go back home for one of those.
I ainít your lover,
Iíve got on too many clothes.

You always laugh at my curses
and when I dance that secret dance,
it's just for your eyes,
you say you hate perfection,
well, i don't know the difference
between those lies and me,
what about that for imperfection?

I ainít your mother,
go back home for one of those.
I ainít your lover,
Iíve got on too many clothes.

Beautiful boy, tell me your secrets,
and I will tell you my lies,
it will keep us through the night
if you keep on believing
that I am your inspiration
for those songs you sing
but I don't want to be your muse

anymore.

Great lyrics
I'd love to hear this one performed. These lines are bitter (yet hilarious in their way) little gems. What kind of song is it? Can you give me an analogue?

Sing-songy but lovely done.

Beautiful Boy
Bitterly lyrical. Kind of rough, tell-it-like-it-is human quality to it. Not what I expected from the title. I should learn not to expect anything, but I like being surprised.

Beautiful deception.
Egads, I really like this one. "I ain't your lover, I got on too many clothes." Very wonderful symbolism there. Hate to say I can identify all too well with these lyrics. I, too, hope to hear this on the radio one day.
