Devious Nature

Lisa Dalbello

She got married when the time was right
Virgin on her wedding night
He wasn't one for a storybook romance
But he's king of the castle no questions asked

Devious nature
No chance to grow
Devious nature
She had no control
Devious nature
She was his to own
He had no intention of letting go

He was never too emotional
Real men don't cry at all
Ornaments adorn her face
Glamour is a woman's place

Devious nature
They were always told
Not to break the silence not to break the mould
Devious nature
Can be dangerous
When there is no balance
Someone's powerless

I believe we'd never change, she said
"Now we're rivals while we play pretend"

Little girls are delicate
Brush up on their etiquette
Giggle and play hard to get

Little boys are tough as bricks
Brush up on their politics
Become heroes, become mavericks

Devious nature

Devious nature
Little girls are delicate
Brush up on their etiquette
Giggle and play hard to get
