Lyrics

I think it was in '83 my father left the family
But came back three weeks later for a love both firm and stable
I think it was in '91 that Lee Remick died.
The sibling rivalry between my sister and me
turned into the strongest branch of our family tree
When I was young I dreamt of Lee Remick
She had a ring upon each finger, she was smiling all the while
Her hair was just long enough so it bounced upon her shoulders
She said she always spoke the truth
My Father let me down but I so easily forgave him
And I know the home wrecker has a place within his heart
I used to blame my mother for each and every failure
And how Lee Remick's eyes sparkled that brilliant blue
He looked just like a Jonathon but he said his name was Ashley
He was my best friend till he drank so much his heart sank
And all my pretty friends who just grew up and failed
And what if I fail? What if I've failed already?
Those filthy little angels tugging at my heart saying
'Boredom is a sin, ambition should be everything'
