In The Meadow

All About Eve

Girl in a uniform

Grey and white and crisp, clean

How can I live in your world

Of strawberry flowers

And colourful hours

Lovingly I dust all the dust on your shelf

Kiss the mirror clean

Where you glance at yourself

I know what to do

Maybe a letter I'll send

From underground and wait to be found out

Lovingly I press out the ink on the page

Carefully I'd scent it

In stock from the meadow

It is dark... in the meadow

I spill it all as I pour

Red wine will stain... remember

There's none for the little girl blue

Who lives down the stairs

And loves like the stars

But I must not forget

That I am what I am

And you must not forget

That you are who you are

It is dark... in the meadow
