Meet the real Natasha Romanova, aka Black Widow [Avengers, Daredevil : Marvel]...

lyrics

In a Red Room I was robbed of choices
When they broke my guard down I could hear their voices
In a Red Room I became another
I was without family, I was only cover

In and out of frame
Following orders in this deadly game

This manipulation buries my twisted truth
This modification carries my future youth
So I shall be what I’ve become
Femme fatale

On a roof top I was sitting pretty
With a sniper’s rifle pointing at the city
On a roof top I could see quite clearly
When I pulled the trigger and they paid most dearly

In and out of sight
Swallowing shadows in this black and white

This manipulation buries my twisted truth
This modification carries my future youth
So I shall be what I’ve become
Femme fatale

Sometimes I feel I could be a teacher
Or a ballerina or a different creature
Sometimes I feel that my life is empty
And my lovers bore me when they should be plenty

There are moments when I think I’m crazy
When a memory changes and the rest is hazy
There are moments when I start to question
What my training tells me is a standard mission

In and out of lies
Hollowing out the mind behind these eyes

This manipulation buries my twisted truth
This modification carries my future youth
Oh, this manipulation buries my twisted truth
This modification carries my future youth
But I shall be what I’ve become
Oh I shall be what I’ve become

Femme fatale
Femme fatale
Femme fatale
Femme fatale
