Ask her what she found in the hills of your stone
Offer her the bounty that she feels that she owns
Keep your mind silent as he's humbled in his gold
Offer many keys to the rivers he stole

Oooh for the rest of your life
Oooh gonna pay that fair price
Oooh 'cause your mama let you go?
Oooh what would be the scene that you show?

Never let your hand shake when you're firm on your blade
Never keep a keepsake of a spill that you made
Keep your eyes peeled on the bridge that you burned
Never lay your hand in the furnace now cold

Oooh for the rest of your life
Oooh 'cause you'll never be here twice
Oooh 'cause your mama's in your face
Oooh gonna pay that big price

Oooh for the rest of your life
Oooh with the needles in your eyes
Oooh 'cause your mama let you go
Oooh what will be the scene that you show?

    General Commentwoman who is entitled meets man with large store of knowledge. he knows her mind and is humbled in his knowledge. her entitlement and grandiosity will be her downfall. her anger at her mother for separating from her will also. he will keep her for the rest of her life.

    My OpinionI hear: Oooh, gonna pay that big price (Oooh gonna pay that fair price)
    Oooh, 'cause your momma let you go (Oooh would your mama let you go?)
    Oooh, what will be the scene that you show? (Oooh would she let you show?)

    Never let your hand shake when you're firm on your blade (Never let your hand shake when you fall on your blade)

    Oooh, 'cause you'll never be here twice (Oooh those will never be here twice)
    Oooh, 'cause your momma's in your face (Oooh does your mama dream your face?)
    Oooh, gonna pay that big price (Oooh gonna play that new game)

    Oooh, with the needles in your eyes (Oooh with the needles in your ice)
    Oooh, 'cause your momma let you go (Oooh does your mama let you down?)
    Oooh, what will be the scene that you show? (Oooh doesn't really seem like you showered)

    General CommentSomeone please explain this song to me!
    I can understand the lines in bits and pieces, but can't see the big picture of what Hope is talking about.
