Complicated Woman, A

A Complicated Woman
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

Broken shards of coffee mug lay shattered on terrazzo
She burned her tongue and cut her toe, but the big hurt’s mostly ego
Steady eyes and tremblin’ hands . A single place in time
The sum of all her fears and this life of pantomime

She has no answers

She throws it all to memory, submits to twist and fate
No cards left on the table. No desire to debate
And her face burns like a phoenix, incandescent through the hurt
And her pride aches as she blots espresso off her skirt
There’s just one thing that lets her bear this path without a plan
She’s a complicated woman, loved by a simple man

Won’t linger near the windows. That world’s just not her pace
And won’t look into mirrors where a traitor wears her face
Echoes through the curtains form a line to hold her hand
But those who pace outside a cage will never understand

For them, she has no answers

She throws it all to memory, submits to twist and fate
No cards left on the table. No desire to debate
And her eyes burn like a holocaust of scintillating fury,
And her mind aches as she lays the truth before the jury
There’s just one thing that lets her bear this path without a plan
She’s a complicated woman, loved by a simple man

She has no answers and each day
Feels farther from the questions
She has no answers and each day
Spins out into lost directions

Still, she has no answers
If there were ever any answers

She throws it all to memory, submits to twist and fate
No cards left on the table. No desire to debate
And she rages like a valkyrie resplendent from the fight
And she tilts and whirls to keep the shore of sanity in sight
There’s just one thing that lets her bear this path without a plan
She’s a complicated woman, loved by a simple man

There are no answers
For a complicated woman but there’s love from a simple man
And he holds all the answers
