You don't know me
Maybe you think you do but
You only know what you think you see

If I let you in
To my private world
What would you think of me
In my cave of fantasy?

Some people build protection
A strong wall around themselves
To keep their private little elves
Safe and out of harm

But you know that kind of sheltering
Really only keeps them small
It doesn't even work at all

And is a false security
Against the brewing storm

I want you to see the skin of me
But I need security
I am so desperate to be born
I am still so very torn

Because I am frightened now
Living in my thunder cloud
How I want to shout out loud

To let you see
The raw and bleeding me
Laid out for eternity

Someone's got to tell her
She can be heard

Someone's got to tell her
Her fate is secured

Someone's got to love her
Even though she knows

She's just a quiet bird
Not the least absurd

(Beneath it all a sapphire crow
Soaring through the coal black night)

Someone's got to let her know
That she's really alright
