Pretty Faces


Pretty faces, Pretty faces
coming over me
Perfekt faces, Perfect faces
think your better than me

Doll faces, Doll faces
overrunning me
Painted faces, Painted faces
wash your faces.

Then I could go to town when I needed to, but could live in blissful solitude, with nature. (Report) Reply

Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
