by Terrain



She's a field of wild flowers
Footprints in and out
Trampled life still grows beside
The seeds of doubt
She's a sea full of wonders
Flowing where it wills
Covering forever
Every ship it kills
She's a sky so alive
Clouds, they come and go
After storm there's colour
By night, the moon glows
She's a forest full of tall trees
Her shade a place of rest
But set that girl on fire
She'll burn til you regret

She says she don't need a man
She knows she's strong and she can stand
But you can see it in her eye she wanna meet a man
Who understands how to show her why she needs a man

A child of revolution
She answers to the spirits
A daughter of dysfunction
Perpetuity, she fears it
A lover of control
The ship goes wherever she steers it
Leader of the boy's choir
They sing if she's writing lyrics

I can see your power
I can feel your light
You rule well, your life
But let me rule tonight
I've been seeking solace
You've been chasing dreams
No way this room can hold us
This place ain't fit for queens
Let me take you to my castle
Where the royal gown is off
We can just let us be us
We can take the crowns off
Let me be your place of safety
Not 'cause you can't protect
But 'cause you shouldn't need to
In the arms of respect
