Cameo Brooch Lyrics

With your mother's cameo brooch

Sat at the foot of her bed taking notes



You watched her since you were small

You are the new belle of the ball



With your father's bruise on your arm

Telling me it's no cause for alarm

Stop...

    Quite a sweet song at first, but chilling when you realize what it's about...
    It starts by contrasting a girl's desire to grow up (trying on her mum's Cameo brooch) with abuse from her dad. She feels ashamed and is forced to hide this, blaming her piano teacher due to 'her sister's love for her dad', until eventually her friend (possibly boyfriend) finds out.
    He doesn't go to the police himself, but encourages her to tell someone. It's basically a declaration of undying commitment - "I will always be there for you", which is what we'd all want a friend to do in that situation...
