She wears pearls in the morning
Because it takes away from the pain.
And she hides behind shades of red
To avoid showing the hues of blue.
She wears pearls in the afternoon
Because its the right thing to do.
She fears the loneliness
More than the control.
She wears pearls at night
Because it makes her feel like a lady.
She sees it as class
He can not take.
Some say she is just hiding
Afraid to face the truth
Others simply have no clue.
That she will wear pearls this morning.
And finally escape her sorrows
In the bottle of black and brown.
