lyrics

I was never very far
From being on my own
From growing up alone

I just never had the time
For people my own age
I always turned the page

Blood and magic in my veins
You don’t know how it pains me knowing
Flood unfathomed it remains
And when I think it wanes
It’s flowing

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born a troublemaker

I take after my old man
I learned to use a blade
‘Cause warriors are made

I will fight until I fall
But I will never tire
My will is my desire

Mud is ground into my skin
The clothing that I’m in is bloodstained
Crud from everywhere I’ve been
And every gallant win
So untamed

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born a troublemaker

I have never been afraid
To stand against the crowd
To speak my mind aloud

I have never been a maid
A damsel or a prize
I don’t do well with lies

Why did you not tell the truth?
I never asked for proof, I trusted
You may sigh whenever I’m aloof
But don’t blame it on youth
It’s rusted

I didn’t ask to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament

No, I never asked to be a sorceress-child
Whose mother was to secrecy sworn
I chose the colour of my hair
To match my temperament
‘Cause I was born
I was born a troublemaker
