Music & Lyrics by Rändi Fay ©2014
Dragonfly whose iridescent
Armor hides her inner essence
Quick maneuvers, feints and flights
Evasive tactics, flickering lights.
Crystal Tears drop from her eyes
Shatter as they fall on lies
Shards that shimmer, pierce the cold
All that glitters is not gold
Smallness is your fortress:
Why run when you can hide?
Smallness is your source of strength:
No room for love denied.
Your courage is compacted
hardened by the years
a diamond’s many facets shine
through a veil of Crystal Tears.
Promises like fairy dust
Just blow away before they rust
A whisper of those unheard cries
that dissipate in alibis…
Where’s the Beauty in the ashes?
Ruby lips and ebony lashes
Give the bottle one more spin,
There’s still a chance that you might win…
Claim your victory by staying small so they won't see
Pay the penalty of fiery secrets kept
Find integrity, hold it close, hold it deep then
Hide your treasury of Crystal Tears you’ve wept.
Chorus & Outtro
