Brothel ( ផ្ទះបន )

from by Flo Brown



In the light of constellation
That I've never faced
There's a time and there's a place
That leaves a trace along the mainline

And you can draw all your conclusions
By the way I treat you
In the dark-ness of the room
where I have found you

I keep on pulling you in / You know well I don't want to
I don't know where to begin / Why can't I keep my clothes on ?
When you're here and you've got me
Exactly where you want so please

On the first night that I met you at the brothel
And the lights were low
You hypnotised me, tantalised me with the motion
Of the slowest Apsara dance

But here's the thing that is rubbing me the wrong way
And you need to know
To understand that I can't stand the other men
Who get to see you when I'm not there

Tried to convince you to stay / But you never listen
You'll be the goddess I pray / You never get things done
Anyway, there ain't no promise that I can make

He pretends there's a way to justify it
I'll tie you to the bed until the morning
She expects him to be another darling
And you can hide it all with makeup

I can feel your dedication
When the whip comes down
And you moan, and you howl
And you don't fail to fulfil your obligations

You keep on building me up / Because you let me down
You kept it hidden in your smile / I couldn't make a sound
I had no reason to live / Don't say I gave you one
That is the way I wanna feel / Well you can't get it from me
Every time that you feel you're going to die
