Back to where it all began,
When I was sure, there was a plan,
As if I have been born again,
The joy of birth, the thrill, the pain

Standing still, stripped and bare,
Don’t leave me here, you can’t, you care.

Why has the age of time not healed?
The aching whole remains unfilled.
Be strong enough to see this through,
To be myself with him, not you.

Standing still, stripped and bare,
Don’t leave me here, you can’t, you care.

The flight of youth has brought me here,
My travelling companions? Love and fear,
Stop now girl, just look around,
Look at all the love you’ve found.

Moving on, still stripped, still bare,
You’ll leave me here, you can, you care.
