Build me a home to hide in
To grow, to live and to die in
I’ve made my bed for me to lie in
Made of sewn cotton and pine
Couldn’t I just stay in limbo here?
The hands on the clock would disappear
And the days and weeks all would smear
To create a world without time
Couldn’t I walk around the world?
A wondering silent mixed up girl
And no one would see my life unfurl
Hanging by a weakened twine
Couldn’t I just refuse to act?
Close my eyes and ignore the facts
And how then might you react
In a world where you were mine?
Dig me a hole to hide in
To grow, to blossom and to die in
I’ve plowed my grave for me to lie in
To swallow and bury my pride
