I'm the Girl

I'm the Girl

 

I've got a memory a thousand years old

And I know secrets I've never been told

And I've got jewels I haven't found

And they'll return me to the ground

 

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl

You know me

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl

 

And I'm a siren; I'll wreck you on my shores

And I'm godiva; I'll call you back for more

And I'm medusa; and I'm your favourite doll

And I'm a georgia o'keefe

Hanging on your wall

 

I'm Joan of Arc, I'm the girl next door

I'm the mother and the daughter

Of the mother and the daughter before

 

And I remember being born just

Sound and light and sound and light

And I remember the first time,

skin on skin in the arms of the night.

Well how many times have we looked

Up into the starry skies, and how many

times have we felt the passion rise.

Every ruby-lipped girl baby, old lady, squaw junkie,

girl after girl after girl, every muse, whore,

good witch, princess, back arching, year after year after year

 

I'm Joan of Arc, I'm the girl next door

I'm the mother and the daughter

Of the mother and the daughter before
