Father, I'm in certain danger of being everything you despise
Mother, I've locked hearts with a stranger
And I can't wash him out of my eyes

So many years I was afraid
Fighting back tears while I obeyed
'Cause I was so eager then to please
Ignoring the sweetness in the tree
Denying destiny
The fruit within my reach
Apples for Eve

Father, I've a growing hunger burning crimson inside of me
What would happen then, I wonder, if I tasted the colors I see

So many years left in the dark
Fighting back tears for fear they'd spark
'Cause I was so eager then to please
Ignoring the sweetness in the tree
Denying destiny
The fruit within my reach
Apples for Eve

Show me, touch me, love me freely
And don't stop 'til I've had enough
Take me to the East and leave me
I would rather toil in the rough

I can stand tall or take a fall
I can give in or risk it all
I can choose who and how I please
'Cause I know the truth about the tree
I know my destiny
The fruit within my reach
Apples for Eve
Apples for Eve
