Benjamin Gibbard — Lady Adelaide lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Lady Adelaide" by Benjamin Gibbard.

Lyrics

Lady Adelaide shows no emotion
Colder than a wave in the Arctic Ocean
She waited all her years for those 3 words
That never reached her ears
They just went unheard
Porcelain and frail, slender shoulders
A breeze of gusty gale could knock her over
She knew a handsome man who she gave her body
But he did not take her hand
And her heart broke softly
Now she’s a bird with broken wing
She likes the ideas of things
More than what they are bound to bring
Lady Adelaide
And with her beauty in slow fade
She is so fearful the will say
That she is a bed that’s been unmade
Lady Adelaide
