girl

girl
say a prayer for this girl
no time to cry, dressed in pearls
rest your bones in this case
you deserve to convalesce

a little broken, misunderstood
never could say what you should
you have forgiven, you’re at peace
no more sins to burden your back

regrets, you have a few
but there’s nothing you can do
wave bye-bye, give a kiss
grab a ride on a spaceship

the walls are broken down
and I am a woman now
girl, you were my chrysalis
I had to die to live again
