damsel in this dress

windowless, not even a door
opens to let you in
can’t redress the consequences of
all the places where I’ve been

time has come, and for me it’s time
to move my heart ahead
and let your love rescue me
not leave this girl wounded

one thing I know
I’m not going too slow
the way you’re working your way
to the center of my heart

Like an arrow
from Robin’s strongbow
while all those long trumpets play
and the damsels’ rescue starts

tall tower, big deep moat,
drawbridge drops down
but there’s no way, I don’t have
the golden trusses to let down

if it’s up to me, it ain’t happening
it’s all up to you —
get the damsel in this dress
so plan the big rescue

one thing I know
I’m not going too slow
the way you’re working your way
to the center of my heart

Like an arrow
from Robin’s strongbow
while all those long trumpets play
and the damsel’s rescue starts

I’m ready to ride away from here
upon your noble steed
I’m just waiting, what can I say?
Go on and do your heroic deed

and like an arrow
from Robin’s strongbow
while all those long trumpets play
work your way
don’t delay
work your way
to the center of my heartThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License
