Tall Towers

Tori Sparks

Girls look forward
To their tall towers
Only to be shut up like
Hothouse flowers

Prince came without a crown
And with expectations
Try and learn to love the man don’t know if you can
And he won’t even take you on a week’s vacation

Well that’s the truth
Though it’s hard to accept it
The prince had a gun and
She knew where he kept it

Life dragged on like a blues song
Dirty and long
She never had the heart to go
And stay gone

Love can leave you with a fever
Like money can leave you cold
Ten years down the line she come home to find
He got himself a new princess to hold

Well that’s the truth
Though it’s hard to accept it
The prince had a gun and
She knew where he kept it

So the princess
She called her mama
Yeah, the queen she’s seen
Her share of trauma

She’s ridden in the front lines
She gave this advice
You took the ring signed on the line
But that don’t mean you got to play nice

Well that’s the truth
Though it’s hard to accept it
The prince had a gun and
She knew where he kept it

Girls look forward
To their tall towers
Pacing the floor
Counting the hours

Now she’s finishing her
Last meal
Flashes a smile Spanish walk down the aisle
Freer than she’s felt in years

Well that’s the truth
Though it’s hard to accept it
The prince had a gun and
She knew where he kept it

I said that’s the truth
Though it’s hard to accept it
When the needle came down
She barely felt it

She barely felt it
And she was smiling when she went
