lyrics

Millie Pertuis (5:09) © 2006 Jason Paul Johnston
Millie Pertuis, my days are off or mostly hit and miss
But you give a little kiss - a small embrace to help me get through it
Millie Pertuis... Millie Pertuis...

Millie Pertuis, I am so broken over this
But you give a little fix - a daily lift to help me out a bit
Millie Pertuis, Millie Pertuis....

I just can't face the day without you paving my way
I can't sleep through the night unless you tuck me in tight
I think it's all in my head, but that's better left
Unsaid like your name cause I'd rather be sane...

Am I a junky now? I start to shake the bottle near the end
Getting a little monkey now - beating my chest and dragging round my hands
Millie Pertuis... Millie Pertuis...

I am your flunky now? Singing soft insinuations
Don't mean to sulk here now - but what you give me doesn't pay the bills
Millie Pertuis... Millie Pertuis...

Name me what you like, I will not care cause I will not feel it
Maybe it's oversight, but what I feel is more than I'll admit

Millie Pertuis... Millie Pertuis...
