Lyrics

The Daughter

I am the daughter of conceit
All of your heroes, I brought to their knees
with the lift of a hip, the blink of an eye,
the twist of a wrist and the softest of sighs

And oh, how they like to go down,
down, down, down
Down in the deep dark night,
down where the river runs wide

I am the daughter of deceit
Whatever you wish for that’s what I’ll bring
The head of a saint, a jewel studded ring
the death of a tyrant, the fall of a king

Cause oh, how they like to go down,
down, down, down
Down in the deep dark night
Down where the river runs wide

I am the daughter of convention
did as you told me, did as you pleased
came to the altar all dressed in white
I never faltered, no I stayed upright

But oh, how I long to go down
down, down, down
Down in the deep dark night
Down where the river runs wide

Cause in the deep nothing matters
In the deep we’re all the same
In the deep I’m no one’s daughter
no one’s failure, no one’s shame

So lord, just let me go down
down, down, down
Down in the deep dark night
Down where the river runs wide
