Don’t look for home in me between the lines of this, our fairytale Man cannot follow the monsters. It’s simple for you love but never for me Nothing can be as it once was.
Call me a beast as you’ve always done but one which can no longer love you Look for me not, lover, I am long gone how can you hope to follow?
You’re meant to crawl upon your knees not steal my soul or talk to me nor beg me to come home with you the last thing i would ever do I am the place where air meets ice escaping from your paradise the girl with the lion’s tail!
I don’t want to be the girl you tame an oddity locked away somewhere safe I don’t want to be the girl you tame your one-heart menagerie, lonely
Give me back the girl I was, the beast I used to be shedding the skin of this creature You were never cage enough to keep the light inside deny me the sky and I’m running.
A lion must keep something back for her own if she’s been let to live. I’d sooner run that waste away at home You already have all that I had to give.
Give me back my broken heart, the dress I wore in Ostia, everything you took away and soul-self replaced; take away your holiness your pleading and your crying eyes and bring me back the girl I was, untamed.
Go cry your Ave Maria my love cry me a river to hell hell or home its all much the same your script, your sain, your cell.
I don’t want to be the girl you tame an oddity, locked away somewhere safe I don’t want to be the girl you tame your one-heart menagerie, lonely (Ave Maria, gratia plena) your one-heart menagerie
Ave Maria, gratia plena, dona nobis pacem, amen (If you don’t feed what you have tamed how can you ask it to love you?) (Give me this!) (I don’t wanna be the girl you tame, your one-heart menagerie, lonely) Your one-heart menagerie…
