today, a phoenix rose

for rosie, danielle, carmen, amber, and cassia

today, a phoenix rose

verse one
today, a phoenix rose
beat her wings against the sky
her cry pierced our lungs
and her brilliance crushed the night

i watched as moonlight chains shattered in her wake
and when i listened close, i could hear her tormenters say

chorus
you gotta watch out for that girl, she's dangerous, dangerous
and if she moves again, it'll be the death of us, death of us
we gotta try to make her fall
bring the storm, the impossible!
you gotta watch out for that girl, she'll be the death of us
she's dangerous

verse two
starlit monsters were revealed
as she froze the masters with her fire
they tumbled in their terror
and the mountains stepped aside

i watched as moonlight chains soon became her prey
and when i listened close, i could her tormentors say

chorus
you gotta watch out for that girl, she's dangerous, dangerous
and if she moves again, it'll be the death of us, death of us
we gotta try to make her fall
bring the storm, the impossible!
you gotta watch out for that girl, she'll be the death of us
she's dangerous

bridge
and she
i don't think she saw
me standing here in awe
and she
i don't think she knew
her path would lead her to the Truth

chorus
you gotta watch out for that girl, she's dangerous, dangerous
and if she moves again, it'll be the death of us, death of us
we gotta try to make her fall
bring the storm, the impossible!
you gotta watch out for that girl, she'll be the death of us
she's dangerous

The End
