WOMANCHILD


I was a flower
A child of the universe
With nature's power
Now I am cursed

By him who cusses
Who wants a grown-up female
When I want a father who fusses
Over me when I am not well

He's too old for you
He forgot how to play
His words won't woo
They'll just send you away

Or he'll run away alone
For 20 minutes or so
Then he'll be at home
Not alone again to know

The pain this girl will set free
Tears that roll on to my heart
No matter how much girl in me
He wants to kill the womanchild part

The part that's wild
That gives up laughter
The part that's mild
That he's not after

The broken heart that's kind
That lets him live with a female roommate
The brown eyes that try to be blind
Because he only wants me for a date

He tells me to grow up
Or find somebody new
When inside like a pup
So excited to see you

I pant and wiggle around
When I think you might love me
Then you, my owner, puts me down
Because my emotions I set free

A womanchild I'll be until I die
You'll have to take me as it's my core
I'm going to smile, frown, laugh and cry
Until I find a fatherman to help me grow up more.
