"To Be A Woman" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
I may have taken a hit but I'm willing and blind
Oh, a little girl took a little chunk right out of my side

I feel a bond between us
I have felt like you do
I know better than to take it away from you

Girl, little girl, you need to learn
Little girl, what it is to be a woman

I have right, the only one in my life
A right to what is rightfully mine
Untainted, untempting, and sober

I will never touch that skin again
I will never feel that way again
I will never look into the face of my father or my friends
And be able to say, I'm okay, I'm okay, I don't feel pain anyway
Not anymore, anyway

And I'm not dead yet, but I could be soon
And all I want to do is put my arms around you

Little girl, you got screwed
Girl, little girl, you need to learn, little girl
What it is to be a woman

    Lyric CorrectionI feel a bond between us
    I have felt like you do
    I know better than to take it away from you

    I have a right, the only one in my life
    A right to what is rightfully mine
    Untainted, untempting, and sober

    I will never touch that skin again
    I will never feel that way again
    I will never look into the face of my father or my friends
    And be able to say, I'm okay, I'm okay, I don't feel pain anyway
    Not anymore, anyway

    And I'm not dead yet, I could be soon
    And all I want to do is put my arms around you

    Little girl, it's all so new
    go little girl, you need to learn little girl
    not to take what is a man

    And I'm not dead yet, I could be soon
    And all I want to do is put my arms around you

    Little girl, it's all so new
    go little girl, you need to learn little girl
    what it is to be a woman
