Mag:
Shilo?
Is your name Shilo?
Can I talk to you?
Can you come down please?

Shilo:
Why?

Mag:
So we can speak

I saw you at the show
I thought I'd seen a ghost
Your resemblance is striking

You have your mother's eyes, her hair
I was told you died with her
All these years have come and gone
How do I put this?
I'm your- Godmom

Shilo:
State your business

Mag:
Business?

Shilo:
What do you want?

Mag:
I want, I want to finally meet you
Something real to cling,
To leave you
With the hope that you will go do
All you're meant to,
All I failed to
In you is a world of promise
We have both been kept in bondage
But you could learn from all my failures

Shilo:
I'm not suppose to talk to strangers

Mag:
Or let them through the gate?

Shilo:
That either
A big risk

Mag:
A big fence

Shilo:
A big mistake

Mag:
A new friend

Marni:
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing

Shilo:
Oh my god, mom!
How'd you do that?

Mag:
Do what?

Shilo:
Do that, that eye thing

Mag:
These eyes can do more than see

Shilo:
I know. I mean,
I've seen you sing

Mag:
Where?

Shilo:
From my window
I can see the world from there
Name the stars and constellations
Count the cars and watch the seasons

Mag:
I wish we could have watched together

Shilo:
I can't have guests

Mag:
Never?

Shilo:
Ever
If Dad found out that I'd been let out
Or that you'd been let in

Mag:
I should go then
Before I do
Promise me you won't

Shilo:
Better that you don't.

Mag:
Don't forget a sheltered rose
Needs a little room to bloom
Outside her bedroom

(Shilo:
It's best if I resume my life
Inside my bedroom.)

Marni:
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing

Mag:
Let your life be a dream
Integrity, honesty
It's too late for me
Don't look back
'Till you're free to chase the morning

Marni:
Yield for nothing
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing
Yield for nothing

    This song shows that mag is the first character to see shilo as more then a pawn and generally cares for the girl and things that she needs to be set free.

    It means that when we have the choice to learn from our mistakes and seize the day, we can, we can do anything we think as long as we try. It means never giving up our faith, our reason for living

    It's just about shilo finding out that blind mag is her godmother, and mag using her eyes to allow marni, shilo's dead mother, to sing some of it.

    The lyric is "a big fence". Perhaps it's not a literal fence, since we know nathan was almost fanatical about keeping shilo in the house and "safe". Let's remember he keeps her locked in her room...
