where do i put this fire

this bright red feeling

this tiger lily down to mouth

he wants to grow to twenty feet tall


i've left bethlehem

i feel free

i've left the girl i was supposed to be and

someday i'll be born

i'm so tired of being shy

i'm not that girl anymore

i'm not that straight A anymore

i want to sit with my legs wide open and

laugh so loud that the whole damn restaurant

will turn and look at me and say

look at the tiger jumping out of her mouth


no more sex-starved teachers

trying to touch my ass

i can finally be a teenager at age twenty-six

go to hell lions, tigers, and bears

i'm not afraid of you anymore

and my fear broke apart like fifty balloons

and i'm thrown around the room like party confetti now


someday i'll be born

someday someday someday i'll be born

someday someday someday i'll be born

high and noon (13 times)
