who is the girl/boy

I am the girl
who spread her wings
in the treetops

I am the girl
who has tamed the wind
for flight

it was me you saw
I was the one
blocked the stars out

I am the girl
who’s just like a bird
and I fly

~

I am the girl
swims like a fish
in the river

I am the girl
who pushes water
aside

it was me who danced
beneath the flash
of the sunlight

I am the girl
the stream and the river
are mine

~

the wind
cannot blow me
away from my path

the river
washes over me
then it’s past

I am the one
that the flames
cannot consume

I am the girl
this day is mine
it’s my turn

~

I am the girl
who walked naked
into the fire

I am the girl
poked her tongue
into the coals

it was me behind
the fiddle the day
that Rome baked

I am the girl
and I have no match
but I burn


 

I am the boy
who spread his wings
in the treetops

I am the boy
who has tamed the wind
for flight

it was me you saw
I was the one
blocked the stars out

I am the boy
who’s just like a bird
and I fly

~

I am the boy
swims like a fish
in the river

I am the boy
who pushes water
aside

it was me who danced
beneath the flash
of the sunlight

I am the boy
the stream and the river
are mine

~

the wind
cannot blow me
away from my path

the river
washes over me
then it’s past

I am the one
that the flames
cannot consume

I am the boy
this day is mine
it’s my turn

~

I am the boy
who walked naked
into the fire

I am the boy
poked his tongue
into the coals

it was me behind
the fiddle the day
that Rome baked

I am the boy
and I have no match
but I burn
