14

Album: Courage (2007)

  • Your eyes they conjure up those Cliffs of Moher
    Faraway and not listening anymore
    Dreaming of life on another shore
    Not here, not now, with me, the bore

    So I stop talking and fade to bleak
    Feeling insignificant, atrophied and weak
    Even though it's not who I know myself to be
    The Queen, the confidence
    Doesn't speak

    [Chorus:]
    But I was 14 with my passion
    And 15 with my best
    16 with my ego
    And zero with the rest
    My heart is a P.O.W. tangled in my chest
    I don't know how to communicate in a cardiac arrest

    Your eyes they drown me in your sadness
    Your words they bring hurricanes
    Braving Shakespearean tempest
    The mighty tiger
    Doesn't blink

    [Chorus]

    I think I found the one
    Silent suffering inside
    The one who got away
    I was too dangerous to hide

    [Chorus]

    So I stop talking, baby, 'cause you always want me to shut up
    Take the center stage meanwhile I become your trusted, silent prop
    So take good care, this mighty woman's ready to explode
    Fire here below the surface of my volcano Writer/s: PATRICK LEONARD, PAULA COLE
