Carolyn Mark - Dirty Little Secret lyrics

Faded and jaded like roses, red roses, shrivelled petals
My scars are medals
Poisoned insides rotten like milk
I was best before, best before, best before now

Hope's expired
Eager got fired
And ready got tired of waiting
And half aspirations and a deep love of wine
Keep me down in the dark where the footlights don't shine
I'll be lounging and scrounging
Till the day that i die

Far from stardom and down on the ground
Easily swayed from salvation delayed
Lingering shadows obscured by the sounds
Of the ones before, ones before, ones before me
