It’s been a long time now,
It’s been a long time,
It’s been a long time since someone’s been looking for me,
I’ve been crouching in the hollow of this tree for so long,
I think they may have gone home.

It’s been a long time now,
It’s been a long time,
It’s been a long time since I saw somebody look in my eyes,
I’ve been looking in this mirror for so long,
No one has had the chance to know me.

Everyone speaks now,
Everyone speaks,
Everybody speak with the same words on their tongues,
Spit them into murky waters
I am under no penetrating sun down here,
No mothers warm and steady hold down here,
I am alone and in darkness.

I count the times,
I count the times,
I count the times since last I saw somebody asking for me,
i’ve been sitting on this bench
Watching stubborn giggling girls get chosen
I don’t care,
Why would I care anyway?

Then he spins her,
There she spins,
Her hair whips him in the eye,
He doesn’t mean to kick her shins,
They continue out of time across the floor,
I swear if I were chosen…..
Let it go,
Why would I care anyway?

I count the days now,
I count the days,
I count the days since someone said they had eyes only for me,
With his Queen beside him,
Whilst he was hiding thoughts of having me beheaded

No use in mothers cautious words,
I was quite sure,
Now I’m alone.

So go on through your hazy fields of summer,
She can flicker like a pattern in the sun glow,
I can lay down in rushes as the wind blows,
Shadows play upon my face,
But you are gone from this place.
