Sinéad O'Connor - The Emperor's New Clothes

It seems like years since you held the baby, while I wrecked the bedroom
You said it was dangerous after Sunday and I knew you loved me
He thinks I just became famous and that's what messed me up
But he's wrong, how could I possibly know what I want
When I was only twenty-one and there's millions of people
To offer advice and say how I should be, but they're twisted
And they will never be any influence on me
But you will always be, you will always be

If I treated you mean
I really didn't mean to
But you know how it is
And how a pregnancy can change you

I see plenty of clothes that I like, but I won't go anywhere nice for a while
All I want to do is just sit here and write it all down and rest for a while
I can't bear to be in another city, one where you are not
I would return to nothing without you, if I'm your girlfriend or not
Maybe I was mean
But I really don't think so
You asked if I'm scared
And I said so

Everyone can see what's going on
They laugh, 'cause they know they're untouchable
Not because what I said was wrong
Whatever it may bring
I will live by my own policies
I will sleep with a clear conscience
I will sleep in peace

Maybe it sounds mean
But I really don't think so
You asked for the truth and I told you
Through they’re own words
They will be exposed
They've got a severe case of
The emperor's new clothes
