lyrics

You want pretty, un-self-aware prey
to hunt and to slay --
that's not who I am, dear.

You want innocence to corrupt
dreams to interrupt --
you won't find them here.

They were all lost long ago
to men better than you'll ever know
and I can't say at this point
that I'm sad to see them go.

No, the stars need not align.
There's no love for you to find
though you don't even seem to mind
or notice it at all --

because if I'm your latest complicated lady
the secret you keep shady
know that my gold's been hidden deep
and it was never yours to keep.

Though you've been a bit of comfort
a little warmth to see me through
there's no end game, I'm unashamed
of all those little dirty things we do.

So go find some sweet Sally --
a simple girl to marry.
Hide your flaming heart from her
I promise I won't say a word.

The Harvey Girls Portland, Oregon

Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke formed The Harvey Girls in August of 2003 in Lawrence, Kansas. The group combine the... melodies of bubblegum pop with experimentation in sound. Their music stands as a cross between Prince Paul's production work and the songs of the Shangri-Las. The couple moved to Portland, OR, in 2006 where they remain. Josh Millard joins the couple in their live shows. ... more
