Where do I put this fire?
This bright red feeling?
This tiger lily down my mouth?
He wants to grow to twenty feet tall.
I've left Bethlehem and I feel free.
I've left the girl I was supposed to be
And somehow I'll be born.
I'm so tired of being shy, I'm not that girl anymore
I'm not that straight "A" anymore.
Now I want to sit with my legs wide open and
Laugh so loud that the whole damned restaurant
will turn and look at me.
"Look at that tiger jumping out of her mouth!"
No more sex-starved teachers trying to touch my ass
I can finally be a teenager at age 26.
Go to hell lions, tigers and bears -- I'm not afraid
of you anymore
My fear broke apart like fifty balloons and I'm
throwing it around the room like confetti now.
And someday I'll be born.........
