She Sings

She sings
About a little princess
Who lives far away
High in a tower
Where no one can touch her
And hour by hour
And day by day
She sings

About a little princess

The light falls across her face
She squeezes her eyes shut

Who lives far away

The third floorboard squeaks
She stiffens her body

High in a tower

The cold air hits her skin
She holds her breath

Where no one can touch her

The mattress sinks in
She closes her mind

And hour by hour
And day by day
She sings
About a little princess
Who lives far away
High in a tower

Where no one can touch her
