I am your daughter carved out of your stone
I'm the seed that you dropped I'm the marrow of your bone
and I am the one who asked no questions
Designed to love you unconditional

I sprouted my shoots and I waited for your hands
and I laid down my roots but the summer came and went
and I looked to the sun, longed to feel your touch
But you knew nothing of unconditional love

And I rose up like a phoenix rose up from your ash
You just turned your back and I'll never understand
Though I had no armor you just let me go
Into the night to battle with your ghosts

If I could go back there I'd be my own angel
She won't buy you a mockingbird, she's incapable
So hush little baby and close your tired eyes
There are no answers so hush now hushabye

And I rose up like a phoenix rose up from your ash
You just turned your back and I'll never understand
Though I had no armor you just let me go
Into the night to battle with your ghosts

So I gathered up my sorrows and I took them on my tongue
and sang them 'til the morning When the sun came in so strong
I sang them 'til the daybreak and that's how I became strong
