Night Speaks to a Woman Lyrics

Lyrics:

(Anastasio, Marshall)
Who Is She? Music, BMI

I know a princess
with one foot in the fire
Two steps from the water's edge
she rides three sheets to the wind
who whispers that
I know a girl who's walking on a wire
Balanced in the air conditioned
breeze that blows
The wind chimes tells me that
I know a woman with whom I conspire
Lawlessness abounds
Just listen to the sounds
as the night speaks to a woman
I once knew

Oh... night speaks!

I know a queen who loved me for a week
Said more from one through four
by seven she would hardly speak
But through words in a book
she never let me see
Stashed it high up on my shelf
and never made me doubt myself
Until reading the words
the section that I seek

Inside I see a tiny piece of me
spread out on the pages I once knew
Lawlessness abounds
Just listen to the sounds
as the night speaks to a woman
I once knew

Like water on the breeze
The night speaks to a woman
Like water on the breeze
