The Empress (Brett Anderson)

Didn’t I try To love her? Didn’t I paint Pictures of her? Didn’t I try To change? I shouldn’t have bothered. Didn’t I buy The ocean for her? Didn’t I wear The colour Didn’t I feel The wind? Didn’t I bleed? She is strange And sorrow. She is Like cherry blossom. She is The Empress. Didn’t I kneel Before her? Didn’t I follow Her orders? Didn’t I clean Her shit? Didn’t I fall? Didn’t I climb The ladder? Didn’t I smile For the cameras? Didn’t I feel The wind? Didn’t I bleed She is strange And sorrow. She is Like cherry blossom. She is The Empress. She is strange And sorrow. With lips Like cherry blossom. She is The Empress
