With a keen wit
and sharp tongue
I was tenacious and vivacious
and my stuborness,

if you tried to pin me down
now I haven't grown much older
but my hot temper has grown colder

now I'm riddled with disgraces
and i hide myself
where I cannot be found

and traded all of my defenses
for a chance to be possessed
by love profound

and this constant captivity
is frustration enough
to make my head spin round

my spirit follows after
and with that hope
