Lo and Beholden

by Patti Smith

I was alone and content in my world
Dancing on air
You sent to me a message that said
I like your style 
Will you come to the temple tonight 
And dance for me there 
I pledge to you all that you wish 
The moon and the stars 

Lo and beholden
Why don't you give it up
Lo and beholden Come on you know it's true
Lo and beholden 
Oh I'm beholden to you

In the palace there was wild reverie
And the look in your eyes
As I dropped veil after veil
Was drunken desire
The dove calls and God notes it all 
The naked truth
Here is my veil the seventh and last
It will cost you

Lo and beholden
Why don't you give it up
Lo and beholden
Come on you know it's true
Lo and beholden 
Oh I'm beholden to you

The royal word has passed
The prophet's head is all I ask 
For beauty and the naked truth
It will cost you

Lo and beholden
Why don't you give it up
Lo and beholden
Come on you know it's true
Lo and beholden 
Oh I'm beholden to you
