Norah Jones - Miriam Lyrics

That's such a pretty name
I'm gonna say it when
I make you cry

You know you done me wrong
I'm gonna smile when
You say goodbye

Now I'm not the jealous type
Never been the killing kind
But you know I know what you did
So don't put up a fight

When you were having fun
In my big pretty house
Did you think twice?

Was it a game to you?
Was it a game to him?
Don't tell me lies

I know he said it's not your fault
But I don't believe that's true
I've punished him from ear to ear
Now I've saved the best for you

And I'm trying not to hurt you
'Cause you might not be that bad
But it takes a lot to make me go this mad

Oh Miriam
That's such a pretty name
And I'll keep saying it
Until you die

You know you done me wrong
I'm gonna smile when
You say goodbye

You know you done me wrong
I'm gonna smile when
I take your life
Mmm, mmm, mmm

    Wonderfully made , the tension is slowly built from the first frame and for some weird reason I find this video comforting and empowering , lol ! I love the song and adore Norah

  32. Mike Simpson

    Dear Lady. Norah Jones has a quality of cultured voice that very few vocalists can achieve in that her vocals still carry out of the recording booth. She sounds as good on stage as she does in a recording. Not many singers can claim this; think Frank Sinatra. This is why she is so well loved. She is an icon.

  33. Miriam Weaver

  50. Михаил Сергопольцев

    Какое чудесное имя!
    Я повторю это,
    Если вдруг заставлю тебя плакать.

    Ты была несправедлива ко мне,
    Поэтому я провожу тебя улыбкой,
    Если ты скажешь: «Прощай»

    Теперь я уже не ревную,
    И никогда не была убийственно ревнивой.
    Но ты знаешь, что я в курсе твоего поступка,
    Так что не пытайся спорить со мной

    Когда ты развлекалась
    В моем большом красивом доме
    Ты хорошо подумала, что ты делаешь?

    Может быть, ты просто с ним играла?
    Может быть, он просто играл с тобой?
    Скажи мне правду.

    По его словам, твоей вины здесь нет, я знаю
    Но не верю в это, это — ложь.
    Его я наказала за слабость,
    А все лучшее сохранила для тебя.

    Я пытаюсь не делать тебе больно,
    Потому что ты в общем хорошая
    Но мне очень трудно удержаться от гнева.

    О, Мириам,
    Какое чудесное имя!
    Я буду без конца повторять,
    Пока ты жива.

    Ты была несправедлива ко мне,
    Поэтому провожу тебя улыбкой,
    Если ты скажешь: «Прощай»

    Ты была несправедлива ко мне,
    Поэтому провожу тебя улыбкой,
    Когда лишу тебя жизни,
    Ммммммм, ммм, ммм.

    Miriam is Dolly Parton's Jolene in another universe
