Young woman, her mother's only child
Artificial love bloomed, you became silk flowers
When nothing grew from what was never alive
You made diamond teardrops fall out of crocodile eyes
Did she pull you down?
Did that bring you down?
Don't let it all get you so far down
Now let me tell you what a wise man said
They say patience will heal your pain
And let me tell you what a wise man said
Oh you'll get broke down, but patience saves

Something so lovely in its old demise
Like golden amber holds butterflies
It takes a lifetime to make a pearl that shines
From a single grain of hourglass time
Is it hard to wait?
Is it worth your wait?
Baby we'll make it worth our wait
And let me tell you what old wives say
They say patience will heal your pain
And let me tell you what a wise man said
Oh you'll get broke down, but patience saves
Oh you'll get broke down, but patience saves

    General CommentTHIS:

    "Did she pull you down?
    Did that bring you down?
    Don't let it all get you so far down"

    AND THIS:

    "Was it hard to wait?
    Was it worth your wait?
    Baby we'll make it worth our wait"

    The most ingenious use of the same word in 3 lines.
    Beautiful..
