I got bitten by a black widow in my sleep,

For no reason when I awoke it was dead beside me,

I’ve walked into traffic and survived,

Cars drove right through me and I walked on by,

So let me be dazzled in shock and awe,

Pinch myself,

Have to question it all,

Give it in one breath,

Make me silent,

Show me an extraordinary life,

Shower me with gold and silver

Show me an extraordinary life,

Let it shine bright,

I fell in the cage with a lion but it didn’t eat me,

All he wanted ,

All it was after was to be free,

All I’ve made are outlines of maps to discover,

All I’ve drawn are pictures with no colour,

So let me be dazzled in shock and awe,

Pinch myself,

Have to question it all,

Give it in one breath,

Make me silent,

Show me an extraordinary life,

Shower me with gold and silver

Show me an extraordinary life,

Let it shine bright,

I’ve turned my back,

I’ve closed my eyes,

I’ve made plans,

For my life,

But let me be dazzled in shock and awe,

Pinch myself,

Have to question it all,

Give it in one breath,

Make me silent,

Show me an extraordinary life,

Shower me with gold and silver

Show me an extraordinary life,

Let it shine bright,

Let it shine bright,

Let it shine bright,
