run, he said
the shore will take them
but offerings won't alter this
do you understand
sure it matters if you are really
superfly's secret wife

she'll be down
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way (away?)
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spits you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spits you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spit you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

see the city, city, city, now
see the city, see the city now, rejected
kiss the pavement that you thought had you protected
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she'll be down when the mountain lets her go

here to return
to return
to return
to return
to you
to you
to you
you

    General CommentI think I downloaded this song by accident, but I still can't believe no one else has commented yet! When I heard it the first time I was just like wow....It's really not like any of her other songs, in my opinion, though the lyrics definetely have a Scarlet's Walk feel.

    General Commentmakes me think extension of ''virginia"
    like ms. virginia laid herself down and betrayed the land, she can't remember her name..
    ''kiss the brave man that you thought that you protected"
    basically in trying to protect the land and the people it was destroyed so now she's trapped in that consequence
    ''she'll be down when the mountain lets her go"
