Grimes - Pretty Dark (Demo) Lyrics




I wish I could be
Your first love the way you are mine
Wish you didn't remember this feeling
But knew it the way I know it (yeah)
Wish you were impaled
And injured with love the way I am
You would cry when you saw my tears
The way I cry when I see yours
I can't control me

'Cause baby, how you own me like you own the world
And if you show me then I'll be your girl
And I'll kill them if they try to hurt you
You dethrone me, boy what a nerve

You call me pretty
Whoa-oh
Boy, you call me pretty
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Got my hands dirty, now
Only love can hurt me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I wish I could be
Your first love the way you are mine
Wish you didn't remember this feeling
But knew it the way I know it (yeah)
I wish you were impaled
And injured with love the way I am
You would cry when you saw my tears
Like I cry when I see yours
But you can only lose yourself once, hmm

'Cause baby, how you own me like you own the world
And if you show me then I'll be your girl
And I'll kill them if they try to hurt you
You dethrone me, boy what a nerve

You call me pretty
Whoa-oh
Boy, you call me pretty
Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh
Got my hands dirty, now
Only love can hurt me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, you own me like you own the world
And if you show me then I'll be your girl
And I'll kill them if they try to hurt you
You dethrone me, boy what a nerve

You call me pretty
Whoa-oh
Boy, you call me pretty
Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh
Got my hands dirty, now
Only love can hurt me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Grimes Pretty Dark (Demo) Comments
  1. Anonymouse 777

    Grimes in this vid accurately depicting every thirsty tik tok made by teenagers and somehow managing to not make it cringey😹😹😹

    The Elder

    In your meager eyes. Lol.

  2. Redhead

    I mean, don't be offended if you sing this song to ur boyfriend and he says "you're pretty psycho ya know"

  3. Scott315

    Grimes has entered my subconscious dreams and apparently is quite comfy there. Yep okay np

  4. zoolook1000

    2020,🥀✈️

  5. Erik Costanzo Lager

    The idea is nice but she is too cringe

    The Elder

    Please put that mirror down Erik.

    Erik Costanzo Lager

    @The Elder that's a compliment

  6. ɑʟpʜɑ ɱɑсʜɪиɑ

    You remind me of The Childlike Empress from The Neverending Story.

  7. velvetdreaming

    smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash , smash

  8. Ваха Ермаков

    Не надоедает смотреть...

  9. da scarecrow

    My name is Dark

  10. Starla Blue

    Beautiful and I love this song. I heard it couple of times and then it kept going around my ahead and love the beautiful sound.The more I listen the more I love!
    Thank you Grimes💖

  11. Spacial Spirit

    I am not rly emo but idk who else is.on my level to be with
    id facinate you. Ull never read this but if u.had a thing for emeralds id like to hear about why
    #StarSeeds
    Indigo

    Spacial Spirit

    And most will just its weird I mentioned this game and theyll sadly never.know
    Less they want to #thanks for yoir ex elons school.for not fking up society even more

  12. Lorna Russo

    You are so cute.

  13. Guided Hand

    She reminds of the princess from the never ending story. Awesome demo!

  14. The1stDukeDroklar

    She epitomizes my ideal woman if she is what she appears to be. A deep thinker which has justifiably twisted her a bit into what so called "normal people" label as freaks. Even at 31 she has not lost her youthfulness of spirit. I would assume she has done financially well and yet still chooses to live a modest "Stoic" and unpretentious lifestyle. Top it all off with absolutely hypnotic music abilities and charm as well as looking like you should ask her for ID and god DAMN! What a WOMAN!

    Ps- Justifiably freaks because who CANNOT be a freak in a world where people (including babies) die every minute for the lack of chump change while so called "normal people" can waste money on frivolous luxuries they won't even remember in a weeks time? The world could be changed if everyone could simply give the cost of a cup of starbucks per week. Imagine what we could do if people chose to drive a camry rather than a lexus and used the excess to help? John Lennon Imagined...
