Come Hell or High Water

This song is by Everything but the Girl and appears on the album Baby, the Stars Shine Bright (1986).

Come Hell or high water
You just do as you please,
Waste your time when you oughta
Be charming the birds from the trees.
A voice straight from heaven
So you like to believe
And who cares if its only
Your poor self you deceive.
You look in the mirror and what do you see?
Too much care and scheming, too little beauties
Come Hell or High water, you never will be
A goddess or a genius, a drunkard at 23
And all that you yearn for, is attention I guess
Come Hell or high water you deserve nothing less.
Come Hell or high water you will stray off the rails
And I won't try to change you for god knows I would fail
And its to the angels that each day you pray
Come hell or high water I know you will meet them someday
