Useless Beauty - Rebeca lyrics

You came down all the way by yourself
though you were just a little girl
I could barely understand what you said
but I knew you needed shelter

To save you from forgetfulness
To give you a sleepful night
Had I seen the consequences
How could I act any different?
(you tell me)

Paint peels and earth
were your daily bread
yet I tried everything
to make you one of us
I saw you glowing
in your fullness
You fought over a man
then you met the unexpected

when you didn't toil for the best thing in your life
what do you have to say when it's taken away?

Everyone thought you were dead
but somehow you're still alive
by the way no one could comprehend
bags of bones are still hanging
but you just don't care
(oh why?)

Paint peels and earth
were your daily bread
yet you tried everything
to make you one of us
you sat like a ghost
inside of a rubble of house
and there is no trace of beauty
once dazzled the village

You never ask for help
You're not proud, you're just distant
You're shut within your hard-earned solitude
