when i was a girl, they told me the world
was made by a man my father ran
ran ran ran he ran

i was only four i was lying by the door
my mother she rocked me back and forth
we cried and cried i remember that night

then i went to school and i swallowed all the rules
i was nervous and ashamed nobody knew my name
they said i wasn't normal my mother said the same
they didn't teach me much, they told me i should pray
i prayed i prayed i prayed

when i was a girl they told me in this world
there's black and there's white you're wrong or you're right
i didn't feel well and i didn't fit in
i was twelve years old and i felt like sin

when i was a girl they told me in this world
some things fit and some things dont
a man and a woman a man and a woman
that's what he wrote this we know

the priest looked at me with his big blue eyes
told me my love was the devil in disguise
my mother wouldn't look at me her eyes were black
i remember that night i didn't come back
i ran ran ran i ran

when i was 16 i heard a woman's voice
she said truth is subjective we've all got a choice
believe what you feel and question what they say
everyone's really just guessing anyway
i thought that you should know this

i read mother jones her words rattled in my bones
i learned about revolution, i don't throw stones
i think what i think and i say what i see
i cut my own hair and i am who i be
and i love who i love who i love like the ocean
i love who i love who i love like the ocean
i love who i love who i love like the ocean
