My lady story
My lady story
My lady story
Is one of annihilation
My lady story
Is one of breast amputation
I'm a hole in love
I'm a bride on fire
I am twisted
Into a starve of wire
Lie in road for you
And I've been your slave
My womb's an ocean full
Of grief and rage
And still you're coaxing me
To come on out and live
Well I'm a crippled dog
I've got nothing to give
I'm so broken babe
But I want to see
Some shining eye
Some of my beauty
My lostest beauty

    General CommentAnother song based around gender confusion. This was one of the highlights of I Am A Bird Now for me. The backing when he sings 'My Lady Story' is stunning and the general feeling of the track is one of extreme comfort on a potentially uncomfortable subject (presumably a sex change operation). A song to be listened to whilst curled up in front of the fire on a winters evening and thinking of the one you love.

    General Commentmaybe it's about being able to believe in and long for what is left of beauty, after your struggle to attain it has already been crushed a thousand times.

    General CommentI listen to this song and it totally resonates with me regarding my experience of breast cancer. The loss of femininity, and the scars, and the resulting sterilisation through the treatment needed. The term annialation totally describes the process. I am not sure that this is what Antony was referring to. Rather it may be regarding a sex change process. The song is probably one of my favourites ever.
