Saffron, beautiful and brown-eyed

Says she just needed time alone

That she's sorry she worried him

But she just didn't feel like calling


Saffron, beautiful and brown-eyed

Says look I want this to stop

He's not happy he wants reasons

Reasons she has got


She says he tries to make her

Things that she is not

And how she has to keep things neat

Though she may want

To just mess them up


How he's jealous and possessive

That he keeps her in a prison

How she has no separate life

How he wants her to be a wife

How she cares for him but

Doesn't love him

Cares for him but doesn't love him

But doesn't love him


Saffron, beautiful and brown-eyed

Will later, later say how sometimes

It's really easy to pretend things are fine

When really things are not fine


Saffron, beautiful and brown-eyed

Soon after she will say how she tried

Tried too hard to mean it

How to mean it she was trying too hard
