Pharaohs and Friends

from Paws of a Bear by Sofia Talvik



My lung is hurting and I'm losing half my sight
But I'll put on my lashes and a halo for the night
I will tell you stories about the seven seas
Of monsters and of dragons, heroic princesses
In the enchanted forest I will let your mind go wild
You thought God would be a soldier
But she's just a little child

I'm working on a puzzle
But the pieces are a mess
I keep pushing the agenda
Like it were a game of chess
I will tell you stories of pharaohs and friends
Of the ones who live in shadows
You know how this story ends
In little town and big town
You let your mind go wild
Expecting God to be a soldier
When she's just a little child

And though my heart is rushing
It's skipping every beat
Have you ever felt the gravity
It's your own damn heavy feet
And I can tell you stories
Of pirates and a pea
But you'll just keep deciding
What you see and do not see
In the tower on the mountain
She let her mind go wild
Expecting God to be a soldier
When she's just a little child

In this world of lies and half truths
I closed my eyes and smiled
if you thought god would be a soldier
you are just a little child

She is a veteran performer with 8 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
