Violent Femmes I Held Her in My Arms Lyrics




I'm gnawing on the knowledge

That I have been burnt

And I'm learning things that I

Should've already learnt

Everyone I ever knew

Was so kind and coy

I was with a girl

But it felt like I was with a boy

I can't even remember

If we were lovers

Or if I just wanted to

But I held her in my arms

I held her in my arms

I held her in my arms

But it wasn't you

I will not kill

The one thing that I love

In this world of wreckage

I look above

Help me Lord

Help me understand

What it means to be a boy

What it means to be a man
