I've got a memory
A thousand years old
And I know secrets
I've never been told

And I've got jewels
I haven't found
And they'll return me
To the ground

I'm the girl I'm the girl I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl I'm the girl I'm the girl
You know me

And I'm a siren
I'll wreck you on my shores
And I'm Godiva
I'll call you back for more

And I'm Medusa
And I'm your favorite doll
And I'm a Georgia O'Keeffe
Hanging on your wall

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm Joan of Arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter before

And I remember being born just sound and light
And sound and light and light
And I remember the first time, skin on skin in the arms
In the arms of the night
Well how many times have we looked up into the starry skies
And how many times have we felt the passion rise

Every ruby-lipped girl baby, old lady, squaw junkie, girl after girl after girl
Every muse, whore, good witch, princess, back arching, year after year after year

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm Joan of Arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter
Before.
