Urban Woman

from by Frances Luke Accord

lyrics

Before me, I mean right in front of me ruby bounty
On the vine, on the vine
The one and the only growing cherry
Child of mine, of mine

Friction is my only addiction and my rehabilitation
won’t put me right, so I take flight
To urban woman, fame and money
Queen on high, on high

Tremble, my double in the window dancing on the table
I was in a trance, in a trance
Falling in love with the ring around your future;
the whisper at your shoulder

Bloom
Fate’s got a hold of you.

Street light
Substance
Valence
Patience and insight
Tongue-tied
Broken
Bone-dry

Sunken down in your cave of wonders like a buried treasure
Queen in vain, queen in vain
Urban woman, what I wanna know here is: can you dance?
Freedom, hammer falling from rolling thunder
I can’t hide, can’t hide
And singing like soldiers to the beat of the bedlam
I’m alive

And in bloom
Fate’s got a hold of you.
Strife
A life for a life

Before me, I mean right in front of me the crowning hour
Queen in time, queen in time
The one and the only future hanging
Child of mine
