Paula Cole – Pearl lyrics

Humility on Bleecker Street
Exposed my faults until I'm left defeated
It's been three years into this relationship
This is longer than I could ever commit

But I feel I'm near
But I feel my fear

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Gotta face my Steppenwolf
Gotta drag you through the mud
When I get there I will see myself
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in there baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl

There are no role models in rock 'n' roll
No women who could have it all
The long career, the man, the happy family
And her I stand and God I do demand it

But I feel I'm near
But I feel my fear

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Gotta face my Steppenwolf
Gotta drag you through the mud
When I get there I will see myself
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in there baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl

It's dark in here--Don't know who I am
Memories come--I'm wading through the mood
Evil side--Wants to drag me down
Will power--God please give me some
(I'm hanging onto hope now)

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Baggage from my family
Going back to therapy
I will kneel, be humble, tow the weight
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in there baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl
