precious pearls

i’m pickin’ up

all the pieces

learn the lesson

that it teaches

brush it off now

it’s not worth it

i remember 

when she said

please don’t waste your precious pearls

tears can change how you see the world 

please don’t waste those precious pearls

you did before, promise not anymore

blow a kiss yeah

and let it fly

turn the other cheek

and let it dry

a lil bit of soul now

all I needed 

feel the change and

i gotta be it

please don’t waste your precious pearls

tears can change how you see the world 

please don’t waste those precious pearls

you did before, promise not anymore

one day you’ll come to find

those pearls have lost their shine

please now, keep in mind

don’t waste your precious time

please don’t waste your precious pearls

tears can change how you see the world 

please
