lyrics

There hung a mirror on the wall made sure that it would never fall.
It was passed by her thrice a day
to make her satisfied she was suitable that day.
Then a day came when she was not around
and all the flowers were safe in the ground.

Black bird in the water,
sing to me nocturnally.
Give me life, emerald eyes,
Leave your beauty in disguise.

She knew not the expectations of man
and strained not to please their wanting hands.

Black bird in the water,
sing to me nocturnally.
Give me life, emerald eyes,
Leave your beauty in disguise.
