erstickt von Wärme,
die er ihr gibt
In ihrer Stille bleibt sie
Bis ich vergeh,
niemand mehr seh,
Lähmung setzt ein,
I could live a little better with the myths and the lies,
When the darkness broke in, I just broke down and cried.
No fun to hang around
Freaked out for another day
Last year I was 21 I didn’t have a lot of fun
And now I’m gonna be 22 I say oh my and a boo-hoo
The gaps are enormous, we stare from each side,
We were strangers for way too long.
Speak out you got to speak out against the madness
I used to count lovers like railroad cars
I counted them on my side
Lately I don’t count on nothing
I just let things slide
Everything comes and goes
Pleasure moves on too early
And trouble leaves too slow.
Still I sent up my prayer
Wondering where it had to go
With heaven full of astronauts
And the Lord on death row.
Like it or not, we were built tough,
Because we’re woman.
Nobody else can share this
Here comes one and one makes one
