Your eyes, they conjure up those cliffs of Moor
Far away I'm not listening anymore
Dreaming of life on another shore
Not here, not now with me the bore

So I stopped talking and fade to bleak
Feeling insignificant after feeling weak
Even though it's not who I know myself to be
The queen, the confidence doesn't speak

(Chorus)
But I was 14 with my passion and 15 with my best
16 with ego and zero with the rest, oh yeah
My heart is a POW tangled in my chest
I don't know how to communicate in a cardiac arrest

Your eyes they, drown me in your sadness
Your words, they bring hurricanes
I'm braving Shakespearian tempest
The mighty tiger doesn't blink

(Chorus)

I think you were the one
Silent suffering inside
The one got away
I was too dangerous to hide

(Chorus)

So I stopped talking, baby
Cause you always want me to shut up
Take this ever stage me
While I become you trusted silent prop
So take good care
This mighty woman's ready to explode
Fire here on the surface of my volcano
