lyrics

I think it's time that he go home
The folks down here they've all built glass on stone
The girls they drink and smoke alone
Once a paintress now a working girl

I can see it in her eyes
She finds it hard to look up at the sky
It reminds her of a girl
Who once thought that she could rule the world

I will hold your hand and take you there
I will keep you safe from suicide

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman

He's preserving seventeen
She took him in the sand, unleash me
It's never silent in her mind now
Afraid to love too much, in fear of not loving enough

I will rescue you from boredom
I'll undress you in the backseat

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman

I would love you in my nightmare
Lose our purity at twilight

'Cause it's the final piece of the recipe
And you are beautiful in spite of everything
And we don't have anything to believe in
You're a goddess, you're a queen, you're a woman
