Manic Pixie Dream Girl

Writing this lyric, i wanted to get the idea of someone who was feeling nervous, panicked, scared and frail. So some of the words don't fit, some sentences don't make sense, some bits are missing.

i couldn't have written this if i didn't know the person came out the other end and is very healthy and happy - if you ever meet a manic pixie dream girl or boy - give them love and understanding 🙂

Lyrics

Dark days take pride of place - For the little girl with the smiling face
A smile that hides - uncertainty
If her face seems so serene - Her hands betray a silent scream
And doubts about - her sanity
Worlds of distorted noise - Distraction drinking drowning boys
Shaking shame - and regret
Touch and hold and then let go - Of something in her overcoat
One thing not - broken yet

The manic pixie dream girl is swaying in the breeze
Washed by winds and tossed by tides from all the seven seas
The manic pixie dream girl is shaking like the leaves
Crossed by stars and chained by dreams of
Never being free

Black clouds hang down the face – of the little girl with silent grace
Reaching out for - sanctuary
Beneath the stones and dusty bones - words are falling all alone
To mourn – dignity
Might have seen might have beens, hopes are only dusty dreams
Bitter pills – memory
Moments passed nothing lasts, out of reach fading fast
Time kills - humanity

The manic pixie dream girl is swaying in the breeze
Washed by winds and tossed by tides from all the seven seas
The manic pixie dream girl is shaking like the leaves
Crossed by stars and chained by dreams of
Never being free

She’s
Thrown in all directions – blown by recollections
The manic pixie dream girl is swaying in the breeze
Drawn to all confections – torn by rare infections
The manic pixie dream girl is shaking like the leaves

The manic pixie dream girl is swaying in the breeze
Washed by winds and tossed by tides from all the seven seas
The manic pixie dream girl is shaking like the leaves
Crossed by stars and chained by dreams of
Never being free
