lyrics

Hey Helen

Hey Helen, your heart’s been stolen
Things just weren’t up to you
Hey Helen, the gods are guilty
Didn’t know what the boys would do

but when you look like that
brings out all the bad
makes me want to shake the walls

They’ll sail a thousand ships for you
Before you’ll learn how to be true

Hey Helen it’s not my business
to say what a girl should be
Hey Helen but all their choices
add up to catastrophe

but when you look like that
brings out all the bad
makes me want to shake the walls

They’ll sail a thousand ships for you
Before you’ll learn how to be true
Ten years in the ground for you
A little love that never blooms

Hey Helen, I’ve always wanted
To love the unattainable
Hey Helen, just how painful
Is it to be beautiful?

but when you look like that
brings out all the bad
makes me want to shake the walls

They’ll sail a thousand ships for you
Before you’ll learn how to be true
Ten years in the ground for you
A little love that never bloomed
