the gift

today beth gave me the most incredible gift of music. the first song anyone has ever actually given to me and said "this is you." i am speechless. completely speechless.

She will never be invincible
She will never be some Florence Nightingale
Her threshold`s invisible
But she`ll hang on like hell



She may be transparent
She`s got no defenses to speak of
But she`ll stand here before you
With no pride or prejudice
Just steadfast and certain
That she`ll land on her own two feet
And you`ll think you can break her
`Cause you think that she`s crazy and weak
But her power will defy you when
She wears her heart on her sleeve


She will never learn your tranquillity
She will never learn how to let things slide
Her joy overwhelms her and
Her sorrow won`t subside



She may be transparent
She`s got no defenses to speak of
But she`ll stand here before you
With no pride or prejudice
Just steadfast and certain
That she`ll land on her own two feet
And you`ll think you can break her
`Cause you think that she`s crazy and weak
But her power will defy you when
She wears her heart on her sleeve



Oh you may condemn me with
Your bitter words and untouchable rage
And you may torment me `cause i don`t
Lead my life in your way
But I will stand here before you
With no pride or prejudice
Just steadfast and certain
That I will land on my own two feet
You`ll think you can break me
Bring my head down to my knees
But my power will defy you when
I wear my heart on my sleeve
