​The Perfect Wife

This song is by Nosound and appears on the album Scintilla (2016).

You quickly got married and had a kid
Even before I realised I had nothing but this sting
What hurts the most is the memory of that beautiful night
Back home late from the airport after a long flight

I wonder if you wake up at night
If guilt is even for a moment a feeling you have to fight
Are you proud of your destructive appetite?
You now live your perfect life
Redeeming yourself as the perfect wife
I wonder if you ever wake up at night
If guilt was even for a moment a feeling you had to fight
Are you proud in your destructive appetite?
You now live your perfect life
A break for your mind as you play the perfect wife

It was cold and we fell asleep face to face
That's the last time I remember your warm embrace
In anger and hate you always perpetuate
I now lay back in salt, aware of each and every fault

This morning I walked down the riverside
Where we used to walk to escape
I waited for you with a bittersweet smile
You destroyed what we called home and everything inside

You know your outer beauty will not last
Blinding others from your hidden past
I choose to trust your eyes when you cried for the pain you gave
More than your eyes' indifference when proud of your own gain
You plied me with promises so many times
Carefully wiping away all my tears
They were too much even for you to bear
So you lied till the day you disappeared
When you saw this time I left for real

I came to you without my selfish side of things
Believing in you, unaware of being unaware
I didn't dare to imagine what you dared
What have you done with your sordid affair

I wonder if you wake up at night
If guilt is even for a moment a feeling you have to fight
Are you proud of your destructive appetite?
You now live your perfect life
Redeeming yourself as the perfect wife
I wonder if you ever wake up at night
If guilt was even for a moment a feeling you had to fight
Are you proud in your destructive appetite?
You now live your perfect life
A break for your mind as you play the perfect wife
