Just to hear the sound of water
Just to put the fire on ice
I'm lying down in the shower
O mercy loosen the vice
Sometimes the sword is so heavy
And the pain has a ravenous mouth
In the pits of my own making
Sometimes I don't think I'll ever get out

All the world stroking their comas
And the madmen making the news
Bent over like a beggar
I was saying "It's no use"

This ain't a world for intelligent women
Unless you like swimming in your own dark sea
These are times are for urgent rhymes
But where the poetry?

When the light
The light is hard to find!
And you're walking blind
You only need to change your mind
Your mind

Wide awake and hope-infected
I became a glittering queen
Every light in my direction
Was a bright magnificent green
Adorned with invisible riches
I saw my stitches glowing so bright
No the burden was not heavy,
For the master it was light

When the light
The light is hard to find!
And you're walking blind
You only need to change your mind
You only need to change your mind
Your mind

When the light
The light is hard to find!
And you're walking, walking blind

The light
The light is hard to find!
And you're walking blind

You only need to change your mind
You only need to change your mind

    General Comment“I see it as an extension of ‘Hopeful Hearts.’ It’s about changing your mind, capital M. Sometimes I would catch myself saying ‘if only this was different,’ but the only thing you can truly change is how you think about everything. Most instances when I was in pain, it was not the circumstance that was to blame, it was how I was looking, receiving, interpreting it. Minds are powerful.”
