about

lyrics

we cut our hair off last spring
a promise to never look backward
we found the strength to believe
we could build our very own universe

we had no dirges to sing
we had no need to fear nightfall
impervious, oh, to the sting
we took on passengers and they tore our white walls down

is it fair for a sparrow to fly
if i am taller i should command more of the sky
and i want to know why
i'm on the ground

now that i'm finally queen
i have no need for this ballgown
impervious still to the sting
autumn takes aim and shoots out every light i've found

is it fair for a sparrow to fly
if i am taller i should command more of the sky
and i want to know why
i'm on the ground
is it fair for the stars to burn bright
if i am closer i should be what's burning your eyes
and i want to know why
you turn me down
