The Worst Thing

From the album Motherland

So you’re in love, that’s so good for you. Live it up girl ’cause it never lasts too long. It’s heaven for now, but not for long before it’s gonna hurt you. It’s gonna make you feel so bad. Once I could love, I could trust, I could not doubt but that was just about the worst thing that I could do, it was just about the worst thing that I could do.

Maybe not now, but it won’t take long before it’s gonna hurt you and truly do you some harm. Once I was open, could hope, I had no doubt but that was the worst thing that I could do, it was just about the worst thing that I could do.

Once I came close to that most elusive fire burning with hopeless love and desire
but it was just about the worst thing that I could do, it was just about the worst thing I could do.

En el pasado que estuve ciega como tu. Atrapada y perdida, como tu. Embelesada y suspendida en mi jaula de plata. Esos recuerdos me accompanaran toda la vida.

In the past I was blind as you, trapped and lost with no escape, just like you.
Suspended in my silver cage. These memories will remain with you forever.
