i’ll wear it proudly lyrics – radiohead

i hate these flaming curtains they’re not the color of
your hair
i hate these striplights they’re not so undoing as your
i hate the b*ttons on your shirt when all i wanna do is
i hate this bl**dy big bed of mine when you’re not here

well i finally found someone to turn me upside down
and nail my feet up where my head should be
if they had a king of fools then i could wear that
and you can all die laughing because i’ll wear it

well you seem to be shivering dear and the room is
awfully warm
in the white and scarlet billows that subside beyond
the storm
you have this expression dear no words could take its
and i wear it like a badge that you put all over my


i’ll wear it proudly through the dives and the
if you’ll wear it proudly through the snakepits and
like a fifteen year old kid wears a vampire kiss
if you don’t know what is wrong with me
then you don’t know what you’ve missed

we are arms and legs wrapped round more than my memory
when the bell rang out and the air outside turned blue
from fright
but in shameless moments you made more of me than just
a mess
and a handful of eagerness says “what do you suggest?”
