about

This song is about the disintegrated ego. Parts of us that we don’t like to see. About being hard on ourselves, but also realizing our power to heal our own pain. It’s long and epic, like the ancient songs our ancestors sang.

lyrics

I’m the lady in black - the destroyer of worlds - I’m the lady in black - want to be someone else
I’m the lady in black - broke my own back again - I’m the lady in black - with the porcelain skin
I’m the lady in black - cannot turn the page - I’m the lady in black - ooh - afraid I lose my way
I’m the lady in black - the words are my corset - I’m the lady in black – I pretend that I am all set

And then you come along and you show me what is wrong - I broke my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - not sure what to do -I’m the lady in black - I’m just like you
I’m the lady in black - my blood is alive - I’m the lady in black - with the wisdom eyes
I’m the lady in black – I'm scared to let go - I’m the lady in black – ooh – I fear to grow old
I’m the lady in black - In the moment of squeeze - I’m the lady in black - I just want peace

I’m made of longing in a league of my own - I know that someone’s coming yet I feel so alone
I’m running away to the edge of the abyss - I’m too afraid to stay there’s so much i miss

I’m the lady in black - I cling to the past - I’m the lady in black - know that nothing lasts
I’m the lady in black - with the educated mind - I’m the lady in black - just want to feel fine
I’m the lady in black - with the brightness of life - I’m the lady in black – ooh - holding the knife
I’m the lady in black - just want to be free - I’m the lady in black - just want to be happy

And then you come around and show me how to be found - I healed my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - building castles of dreams - I’m the lady in black - bursting at the seams
I’m the lady in black – I'm climbing that mountain - I’m the lady in black - I'm the dot in the horizon
I’m the lady in black - I open up to you - I’m the lady in black – ooh - I tell you of my truth
I’m the lady in black - I lean on you - I’m the lady in black – then I fall right through

And then you come around and show me how to be found - I healed my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - I sail in my boat - I’m the lady in black - I’ve got nowhere to go
I’m the lady in black - with all the anger - I’m the lady in black - I lower my anchor
I’m the lady in black - with the power of rage - I’m the lady in black - coming of age
I’m the lady in black - walking in the meadows - I’m the lady in black - stepping out of the shadows
