She can kill with a smile She can wound with her eyes She can ruin your faith with her casual lies And she only reveals what she wants you to see She hides like a child, But she’s always a woman to me
She can lead you to love She can take you or leave you She can ask for the truth But she’ll never believe you And she’ll take what you give her, as long as it’s free Yeah, she steals like a thief But she’s always a woman to me
Oh–she takes care of herself She can wait if she wants She’s ahead of her time Oh–and she never gives out And she never gives in She just changes her mind
And she’ll promise you more Than the Garden of Eden Then she’ll carelessly cut you And laugh while you’re bleedin’ But she’ll bring out the best And the worst you can be Blame it all on yourself Cause she’s always a woman to me
She is frequently kind And she’s suddenly cruel She can do as she pleases She’s nobody’s fool And she can’t be convicted She’s earned her degree And the most she will do Is throw shadows at you But she’s always a woman to me
It took quite a bit of listening and some arguing with myself (and some trying to remember songs I may have forgotten) but HERE IT IS. A soundtrack for Lucky Us! Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions, and I hope you enjoy it. Please clicky the song title to open the video, yada yada.
Note: The following songs are presented in chronological order. Progression of feelings and all that jazz.
High on the Hill, Ascending the Steps to The Order of the Penetrating Eye
What could make them so afraid To run and lash out That unknowing over knowing Would serve any purpose Save rejecting what is hard and true To fret for ones entire life Afraid of their own shadow Not knowing they spoil themselves Believing to end as nothing more Than a pot of coffin liquor If the ribbon of understanding is realized And the will set forth The arrhythmic beating of a black hole heart Turns to the hum of an eternal sun Beat back dread with courage Enter the fray with exhilaration Accept and know There is nothing to fear
