Quiet Girl

This is a song that I wrote for my novel, Varietal. Enjoy! 🙂


Sitting on the side of the road

A little girl with her brow farrowed

Clothes a ragged mess

Cuts and slashes her cheeks and dress

Her body shakes, tears stains

There is brokenness pumpin’ through her veins

 

Quiet girl, quiet girl

No one wants to see you cry

Hush little darling, hush little darling

Don’t you whimper now

 

Leaving the words and yelling behind

She decides not to wait for the stars to align

Prince Charmings don’t come to this part of town

She’s going to have to stitch her own gown

Found out fairy tales aren’t real

So she went to the devil and made a deal

 

Quiet girl, quiet girl

No one wants to see you cry

Hush little darling, hush little darling

Don’t you whimper now

 

She’s made something of all those tears

It took many many years

Gave away some things she shan’t

But got what she wanted, that helps can’t?

But those words still haunt her

She feels them though the gold and myrrh

 

Quiet girl, quiet girl

No one wants to see you cry

Hush little darling, hush little darling

Don’t you whimper now

 

She’s still that same little girl

But now she’s got some pearls

But nothin’s good enough to dry her eyes

Quiet girl, quiet girl

No one wants to see you cry

Hush little darling, hush little darling

Don’t you whimper now

Don’t you whimper now

  1. Beautifully sad 😦 Makes me think of Las Miserables and the girl on that movie. Well written and I can only imagine it as a song.
