Rufus Wainwright – Damsel In Distress


Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A harbinger of loneliness?

Yes, I remember smiles
Yes, I remember wiles
Behind the Square of Sloan
Under the English moon
Within the Chelsea sky

Will you forever be,
Wandering the wall?
Lookin’ for what you see
Your father’s face in a waterfall

Yes, I remember smiles
Yes, I remember wiles
Behind the Square of Sloan
Under the English moon
Within the Chelsea sky

So much
You got exactly that
You got exactly what you wanted
But what the hell is that?

Who do you think I am,
A traveler on the wind?
I am a prince of man
Who was raised to soon be king

All I can do is fight
All I can do is wright
Behind the Square of Sloan
Under the English moon
There I learned to survive

So much
You got exactly that
You got exactly what you wanted
But what the hell is that?

I hope you find your way
For the sake of what we’ve lost
And that there comes a day
When you realize the precious cost

Yes, I remember smiles
Yes, I remember wiles
Behind the Square of Sloan
Under the English moon
You in your disguise

So much
You got exactly that
You got exactly what you wanted
But what the hell is that?

Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
Will you forever be,
A damsel in distress?
