The Pharaohs Lyrics

by Neko Case

you were married in the mirrored hall when i was 16
you spoke the words, "i love girls in white leather jackets"
that was good enough for love, it was good enough for me

i listened in when you thought you were alone
calling the sphinx on a tornado's phone

who knows what she'll say
i only heard what i wanted
you said i was your blue, blue baby
and you were right
you said i was your blue, blue baby
and you were right

wandered the halls all the nighttime
my body burned, my legs ached
but you never came to bed
you just left me there awake

you kept me wanting wanting wanting
like the wanting in the movies and the hymns
I want the pharaohs, but there's only men
I want the pharaohs, but there's only men

you said i was your blue, blue baby
and you were right
you said i was your blue, blue baby
and you were right
