LYRICS

"Flora" - words and music by Greta Gertler

Time has a habit
Of slipping away
When we try to make plans
But I know a story
From which we can all learn
How to take matters into
Our own hands

Born in captivity
She only knew
Her lonely ways
And the emptiness
Inside her endless days

She knew the reason
Something was missing
A pitter patter in her
Beating heart said
"Girl, there's a beauty
That's yet to surround you,
To give you freedom
And a brand new start"

But nobody heard her cry
And her tears began to build up
Into a solid form
Into the roundness,
Potential of an egg

Flora, she's a dragon lady
And she don't need a man
To make babies
Growing up so happy
What a change in the plan

Flora -- how do you do it so well?
Flora -- breathing your fire into the the world
Flora -- you lit the spark on your own.

Flora, she's a dragon lady
And she don't need a man
To make babies
Growing up so happy
What a change in the plan

Flora -- how do you do it so well?
Flora -- breathing your fire into the the world
Flora -- you lit the spark on your own
Flora -- How do you do it so well?
