Otep

Otep - UR A WMN NOW

rate me

<BR>

Stars litter the sky<br>

The moon is shining high<br>

<br>

This soft, September night<br>

Two lovers creep out of sight<br>

<br>

A maiden dressed in white<br>

With copper hair<br>

<br>

Restless for adventure<br>

She don't care<br>

<br>

That the wolf is in disguise<br>

She's been ensnared<br>

<br>

He got the devil in his eyes<br>

& stylish flair<br>

<br>

He shoves her to the ground<br>

Her soul begins to drown<br>

<br>

A sky full of eyes where the stars should be<br>

A sky full of eyes watching silently<br>

<br>

You're a woman now<br>

You've become a women now<br>

<br>

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough<br>

You've become a woman now<br>

<br>

Mama woke me up at dawn<br>

She helped me get my best dress on<br>

<br>

She braided flowers in my hair<br>

So sweet was the summer air<br>

<br>

I'm to meet my groom down by the sea<br>

A perfect stranger to correct me<br>

<br>

The judges arrive in pairs of 3<br>

Don't be scared, just relax & breathe<br>

<br>

Good girls hold real still<br>

Surrender your free will<br>

<br>

They cracked the crown<br>

To pluck the pearl<br>

<br>

Here, on the jagged edge<br>

Of the world<br>

<br>

You're a woman now<br>

You've become a woman now<br>

<br>

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough<br>

You've become a woman now<br>

<br>

Standing on the welfare line<br>

My daughter clinging to my side<br>

<br>

I see the faith in her eyes<br>

I whisper, baby we will be fine<br>

<br>

I'll get a good job<br>

& we'll find a new place<br>

<br>

I'll work real hard<br>

& we'll make our escape<br>

<br>

I promise you I will get us through<br>

Together we will bloom<br>

<br>

You're a woman now<br>

You've become a woman now<br>

<br>

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough<br>

You've become a woman now<br>

<br>

You're a woman now<br>

You're a woman now<br>

You're a woman now<br>

<BR><BR>
