apologies to ARG who definitely shouldn't stop singing

lyrics

Anna Rose, would you please stop singing?
Anna Rose, I just can't stand it when you sing
Cause when you sing, I wanna keep on living –
such a vain and irresponsible thing

Anna Rose, you're making me break mirrors
Anna Rose, you're making me spill salt,
summoning ghosts of lovers and disappearers –
I need an Evil Eye, and it's all your fault

Anna Rose, would you stop that beauty?
If I'm not measured then no one can use me

I went to my old love (I know I shouldn't've)
Guess he's a habit that I can't break
He's a go-getter; he should know better
How can he rule the world kissing me awake?

So I went to the Strong Man, and melted in his big hands
and left his bed because he can't afford to dream
It was a long winter; it was bend or splinter
and which I did, guess it remains to be seen

Anna Rose, would you stop that beauty?
If I'm not measured then no one can use me

Here it comes from 5000 years ago
I hear it rise from deep underground
Anna Rose, that's a voice like a nation:
It's got you, not the other way around

Ooh, would you please stop singing?
Don't you know I just can't stand it when you sing?
Cause when you sing I wanna keep on living –
Such a vain and irresponsible thing
