VAST - Pretty When You Cry Lyrics



You're made of my rib or baby
You're made of my sin
And I can't tell where
You lust ends
And where your love begins

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you
I didn't want to hurt you
But you're pretty when you cry

And the moon gives me
Permission and I enter
Through her eyes
She's losing her virginity
And all her will to compromise

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you
I didn't want to hurt you
But you're pretty when you cry

I didn't want to fuck you baby
I didn't want to fuck you
I didn't want to fuck you
But you're pretty when you're mine

I didn't really love you baby
I didn't really love you
I didn't really love you
But I'm pretty when I lie

You hurt me baby
I hurt you baby

If you knew how much I love you
You would run away
But when I treat you bad
It always makes you want to stay

I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you baby
I didn't want to hurt you baby

  79. Ricky Downhill - RDH

    LOL. I used to sing this in my GF's ear at night just to mess with her. Good times!!

  80. Wieńczysław Nieszczególny

    my first album bought over the internet... awesome:)

  81. Copious Doinks LLC.

    I've loved this clip since I first saw it back at the tender age of 15... I think the reason I love it is because it's so ambiguous; it tells a story but it doesn't quite tell _the whole_ story. It leaves enough up to the viewer to make multiple viewings interesting.

    To whit: Is it a recollection of a horrible serial killer's latest crime or is it simply the wandering mind of a taxi driver taking a pretty (and slightly intoxicated) girl home on a particularly long fare? Is it the story of a man who is sadistic and enjoys the pain and suffering he wreaks on others, or is it the tale of a tortured soul who secretly craves his own misery and self-loathing, and punishment for the perceived wrongs he's committed? Is it a film clip about a particularly dark-sounding song, or is it a short film that describes the psychology behind the loneliness of the modern working man, desperate for some semblance of control over his own life, to the point where he will either create fantasies in his own mind or completely lose it altogether?

    Truly an underrated masterpiece of a film clip, and I'm really annoyed that it got censored, tbh. This is the sort of stuff that should have been a part of Film School 101. Great style, great direction, great everything. Not to mention, VAST were an amazing band.

  82. George Botas

    Εξωφρενικά τέλειο κομμάτι, άρρωστο κλιπ, εθισμός!

  83. Derek M

    well that was creepy

  84. Basile Châtelain

    most underrated band ever, Chris Cunningham and Aphex lost children.....RIP

  85. Scott Allison

    Love the reverse red riding hood theme

  86. Persephones Charm

    its sad, my ex dedicated this song to me and left me. .. still awesome song but has a bad taste for me personally

  87. Laura Schlieselhuber

    Dacryophilic me approves.

  88. Daniel Baich

    Debrajean brought me here

  89. alma’s world

    this is giving me twin peaks vibes all the way

  90. ebbhead20

    love this canadian version of Trent Reznor. 😊

    alectorejoice

    Err, VAST is from Texas

    ebbhead20

    hmm.. thought he was a canadian ? my bad 😐

    Julie Jo

    No VAST is from Sonoma County Ca

    TimeandMonotony

    ebbhead20 don't know where he's originally from, but it's a Seattle-based band.

    Wayne Sisson

    From Istanbul, actually. Weird, right?

  91. Elephant Weasel

    I need this in HD!

    MartyvH

    Elephant Weasel Unfortunately HD wasn't around in 1999.

  92. Borororong

    No video I've watched has ever portrayed hideousness more gracefully than this one has.

  93. Nadja Narain

    Fav video of all time .. Idk why its just something about it that gives me chills ,but like in a good way

  94. L. M. Robinson

    Does anyone have information on who the main actors are in this video?

  95. Andrew Lindop

    I dig this

    Andrew Lindop

    just bought it on Amazon - win!

  96. Bays Holdren

    I would kill for that doll. Does anyone have any info on it? I figure it is a one of a kind thing but I have wanted it for years.

    Laura Schlieselhuber

    Maybe try to make it piece by piece, with different people. Ask a wood worker to make the head, someone who's good with needles to make the body, the hair and the doll, and a painter to add details. It's quite expensive, tho.
    I hope that makes sens. Sorry for my english.

    Bays Holdren

    Bays Holdren

    great idea Laura!

    Whitewolf Wendi Brown

    +Bays Holdren I bet you could make one if you know how to sculpt. I would try it with that baker's dough they give to little kids and you bake it - so equal parts flour, sugar and water. Then use acrylic to paint. Actually I THINK you can paint these things with something else and bake them - maybe food coloring, but if you want the colors REALLY RICH, I'd use acrylic.

    And then go to the good will or toy store and pic a doll you approve or, remove head and mount new head!
    Presto! :)

    v4vun

    Laura, surely you meant "piece by piece, from different people"!

    max

    Doesn't make a difference, really.

  97. Onur Mükmemer

    bu karının yarrağı da vardır

  98. sarah laloe
