lyrics

She steps out of the morning like a diamond on a ring,
she flows upon the mist like a mythical queen.
And gently to the water she slowly glances in
hoping to find some lines on the face within.

For she is the child time forgot
while taking all she knew,
and now she knows that she must pay her dues.
She's been in love a thousand times,
a thousand pains too many,
and now she knows that she'll never love again.

Looking in the water she sees tears in her eyes,
tears within waters within eyes.
She knows what's to be done though the wind it answers, "No!"
take her life and then take her time.

For she is the child time forgot
while taking all she knew,
and now she knows that she must pay her dues.
She's been this way a thousand times,
a thousand rainy days,
and now she knows that she'll not return again.
She's been in love a thousand times,
a thousand pains too many,
and now she knows that she'll never love again.
