Roisin Murphy

Roisin Murphy - Scarlet Ribbons

rate me

From the cradle to the throne

My flesh and my bones

Is that the way it's supposed to be

How the story goes

Ribbons and bows

Like a thorn on a rose

When the one man who gave it all to you

Has to let you go

He found for me scarlet ribbons

Scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father's love

When another has his daughter's love

Don't you know they'll never be here but

I'll always be your little girl

It's all borrowed time

And you always said I would regret it

If I grew up to fast

But my heart is strong and true

I'm doing fine

The things that you said

I won't forget them

I'll do as you ask

And always play fair for you

You found for me scarlet ribbons

Those scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father's love

When another has his daughter's love

Don't you know they'll never be here but

I'll always be your little girl

There's a part of you

In every part of me (should know better)

Maybe you should know

I won't let that go

As long as I can cry on your shoulder

Won't be growing up

Just older

You have got to let me go

You found for me scarlet ribbons

Those scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father's love

When another has his daughter's love

Don't you know they'll never be here but

I'll always be your little girl

I'll always be, always be your little girl

Always be, always be your little girl

Always be, always be your little girl

Always be your little girl

You have got to let it go, oh oh

You have got to let it go

You have got to let it go, oh

You have got to let it go

You have got to let it go, oh oh

You have got to let it go
