Prima Dona – Mer Girl lyrics

I ran from my house
That cannot contain me
From that man that I cannot keep
From my mother that haunts me
Even though she's gone

From my daughter that never sleeps
I ran from the noise and the silence
From the traffic on the streets
I ran to the treetops
I ran to the sky

Out to the lake
Into the rain
That matted my hair
And soaked my shoes and skin
Hid my tears, hid my fears

I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and ran
I was looking for me

I ran past the churches
And the crooked old mailbox
Past the apple orchards
And the lady that never talks

Up into the hills
I ran to the cemetery
And held my breath
And thought about your death

I ran to the lake
Up into the hills
I ran and ran
I'm looking there still

And I saw the crumbling tombstones
The forgotten names
I tasted the rain
I tasted my tears

I cursed the angels
I tasted my fears
And the ground gave way beneath my feet
And the earth took me in her arms

Leaves covered my face
Ants marched across my back
The black sky opened up
Blinding me

I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and ran
I was looking for me

I ran to the lakes
And up to the hill
I ran and ran
I'm looking there still

And I smelt her burning flesh
Her rotting bones
Her decay

I ran and ran

I'm still running today
