She who walks alone in life is she of sound mind? I am only as old as I've been told Now I'm playing for time Darling take me to the lakeside Wash my body well I am holy now the water's hit me Broken from your spell I was on my hands and knees Bending at the heart of me We don't know the weight of all the words we say now In a few more years, with open ears Would you still say them aloud? They who walk alone in life They are of sound mind We can only get hurt by things we've heard And lovers are unkind Did you hear the sun go down? Silent as a child I found Hiding in the midnight of my soul I am ready now to let her go She who walks alone in life is she by herself We are only as old as we've been told And I'm not ready for the shelf Darling take me to the lakeside Lay my body down I am holy now our skin is touching Let the sun go out I am on my hands and knees Bending at the heart of me Hiding in the midnight of my soul Please don't break this shell that I call home
