lyrics

When we first met, there were stars in my eyes
With your dangling cigarette, and little boy smile
And we couldn't help ourselves, a child was conceived in scandal

And so we were wed, a little girls dreams
They don't mean much in towns like theses
And mummy and daddy pushed us to the altar
and I was a good girl, just as they taught her

I hadn't thought through, being with you, but a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do

The drinking, the gambling, the long nights alone
You would come home in the morning, you hadn't even phoned
And then came the beatings just short of broken bones
And I'm hiding the bruising

Well who's to blame, I just can't tell
did we both play a part in creating this hell
But your home is your castle, the place where you're safe

In the seat of your power, this kitchen is a cage
You live in a bottle
and I live with your rage
and all I want to do is to heal all your pain

Oh a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do

Memories make gritted teeth as I watch our little baby play
Love quickly faded, but on I did stay
for our child, for you, for the hope that some day you'd see me as something else than a ball on a chain
Beating me when you're drunk leave me bleeding in the rain
For all my dreams of being loved that never came true
Oh a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do

I scream and I yell
It all bounces off you
But I know of one thing that will penetrate through
For all my dreams of being loved that never came true
Oh a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do

about

Redro Redriguez & His Inner Demons Melbourne, Australia

Like a long drive on the coast, in a V8 Monaro. Redro Redriguez & His Inner Demons combine the laid back roll of the Stones, the down tuned fuzz of Kyuss, and the clanging, banging, chords of Sonic Youth to present rock tunes dripping in layers of velvety distortion. ... more
