Music Prompt #26: “Terrible Things” by April Smith and the Great Picture Show


Before we get to this week’s melody, I wanted to let you all know that I really enjoy reading your poems, stories and thoughts. You mean very much to me, more than music can even say. 😀

I reviewed my playlist for this prompt yesterday when I came upon a song through a lady who seemed many things last week’s lady could only dream of. Yesterday’s Lady of the Night is mysterious, yes, but could she withstand the sun and grime of day to day living?

I’d like to see them duel it out. Who do you think will win?

Just a thought.

“Terrible Things”


If you dig under my feet
You will find things that you don’t want to see
Things that I hide deep down inside
A menagerie of the tragedy I caused and all of my flaws
And my demons are all that can see
Then what would you do …if you only knew[chorus]
All of the things that I’ve done
Terrible things…you would never believe
Things that I’ve done
Oh how you’ll run
If you knew a single one
All of the things that I’ve done

Would my face give me away
But I know it wont
Cause I don’t even feel

I just reflect what you expect
So you don’t suspect that…
I could be exactly who I am


I know that I’m inflected
But who could have predicted
That monster that I’ve become
I keep things carefully covered
So no one will discover
That I could be the culprit
I’m sorry I cant help it

    I wasn’t sure… but it relates to my latest BeeBee.
    But I’ll have to wait for nap time to post.
