She's a girl

Rising from a shell

Running to spring

It is her time it is her time

Watch her run with ribbons undone

 

She's a rose in a lily's cloak

She can hide her charms

It is her right there will be time

To chase the sun with ribbons undone

 

She runs like a fire does

Just picking up daises

Comes in for a landing

A pure flash of lightening

Past alice blue blossoms

You follow her laughter

And then she'll surprise you

Arms filled with lavender

 

Yes my little pony is growing up fast

She corrects me and says

"You mean a thoroughbred"

A look in her eyes says the battle's beginning

From school she comes home and cries

I don't want to grow up Mom at last not tonight

 

You're a girl

Rising from a shell

Running through spring

With summer's hand in reach now

It is your time

It is your time

So just run with ribbons undone

It is your time yes my angel

It is your time

So just run with ribbons undone

 

Run run darlin'

Ribbons undone

 

[Tori Amos]
