Dipping oars in fuchsia waters
I watch the night become the day
Listen to my father's words:
Daughter, throw your dreams away

Down my river to the sea
Can you count the waves, my dear?
Shadows dancing in the sun
Daughter, tell me all you fear

From the sea into the sky
Fight the clouds to stop the war
Thunder grins at your demise
Daughter, you will laugh no more

But when your heart turns hate to love
Only you take right from wrong
And here's the secret, never told
Daughter, lies will make you strong
