I’VE BEEN ALIVE FOR CENTURIES AND I’VE KNOWN VARIOUS MODES OF BEING
I’VE LIVED FROM THE CAVES OF ISOLATION TO THE TEMPLES OF RIGHTEOUS SEEING
I’VE BEEN MURDERED FOR BEING BEAUTY I’VE BEEN SLAPPED FOR BEING RUDE
BUT I’M MOST TOUCHED BY THE WAY YOU TOUCH ME BY THE MAGIC OF THE TRUTH

AT MOMENTS I FORGET I DESERVE YOU THAT I’VE WORKED HARD TO KEEP US IN TOUCH
THERE WAS A MOMENT WHEN THE MOLECULES COULD HAVE SPLIT WE’D HAVE WAITED FOR ANOTHER HUNDRED YEARS OF IT

FLIPPING BACK AND FORTH FROM HEAVEN TO FIRE
BUT I’M GLAD THAT THE GEMS OF OUR RINGSTONE HAVE TURNED TO HUMAN DESIRE

I’VE SEEN PORCELAIN IN YOUR FACE AND RUTHLESS IN YOUR EYES
BUT I’M MOST TOUCHED BY THE WAY YOU TOUCH ME SEEMINGLY WITHOUT TRY

YOUR SEEING ME AND LOVING ME HAS NEVER BEEN A LIE
YOU ARE A CHALLENGE TO MY POWER TO REEL AND FALL AND STAND TALL
I ALWAYS KNEW THE DIAMOND OF THE UNIVERSE WOULD BE MY FRIENDS
YOUR PRESENCE AS IT GROWS BEFORE ME LENDS FOR JEALOUSY AND FEAR
WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS KEPT THESE THINGS SECRET

UNTIL US, UNTIL NOW, UNTIL HERE SO SHINE, CHINA PORCELAIN, SHINE, SHIMMER AS YOU STAND
WRAP YOUR EYES AND LASHES ROUND SHOW US
SHOW HOW CAN WE BE ANYTHING BUT GLAD

I’D RATHER LOSE MY ENVY I WOULD RATHER REVEAL THE QUEEN
I’D RATHER SHOW THE BITCH ON TUESDAY THAN NEVER BE SEEN

YOU AND I HAVE KNOWN THE MEANING OF THE WORKS FRIGHTENED AND RISK
YET HERE WE SIT LAUGHING LAUGHING HERE WE SIT

YOUR SEEING ME AND YOUR LOVING ME HAS NEVER BEEN
IT HAS NEVER BEEN A LIE

COMMENT:
It’s not your typical POP song, but I love this song.
And it’s all still true. I would rather go through or lose anything and be genuinely seen.
Truly seen. That is worth all.
