lyrics

You raised me from my first gasp of air.
Grazed knees and messed up grades were in your care.
You bathed and dressed me year on year,
But just one thing was never said,
It was your deepest fear.

I am your daughter, and I will break your heart.
Just like all the other daughters from the start of time.

Rebellion was not my style. As
Teenagers go, I was good for a while.
Considerate and obedient, we all forgot that
I was not heaven sent.

I am your daughter, and I will break your heart.
Just like all the other daughters from the start of time, but
I’ll make it mine, when wedding bells chime and
My heart will cleave to one who won’t leave, me
Until the end of time.

Comic books and fairytales were fine when I was young. The
Magic of the long lost evenings, playing hide and seek in the fading
Sun. And thunderstorms that made me
Quake with dread and glee. but the
Monster under my bed, was me.

I am your daughter, and I will break your heart.
Just like all the other daughters from the start of time, but
I’ll make it mine, when wedding bells chime and
My heart will cleave to one who won’t leave, me
Until the end of time.
