Lyrics

She isn’t afraid of spiders anymore
not since she left that web
brown recluse and black widows don’t have anything
don’t have anything on a man in red

Now joining everything else in flight
casts a shadow made by her own light
over a place so entangled before
she spreads her wings

She always believed in the long run
counted stars and days till the new sun
held her head up high just like anyone
just to let them see
kept smiling and hid it from the little ones
lived a life that others might consider none
all up to the day that she decided
all to let them see

Diamonds and silk, rubies and pearls filled her world
but the silk never quite fit
always a little too tight, choking off the premises
blocking doors and windows and oxygen

Now joining everything else in flight
casts a shadow made by her own light
over a place so entangled before
she spreads her wings

She always believed in the long run
counted stars and days till the new sun
held her head up high just like anyone
just to let them see
kept smiling and hid it from the little ones
lived a life that others might consider none
all up to the day that she decided
all to let them see

She isn’t afraid of spiders anymore
