Written at Midnight Farm on Martha's Vineyard.


I was taken from rags and traded for fools gold,
Sculpted by an artist and cut from a mold,
When he whisked me away with his imagination,
Placed my heart on display like an heirloom being pawned...

When weeping turns to pray'n,
And hoping in to dream'n,
That someday a prince will come and rescue me...

When Hearts start a break'n,
Your mind needs some mending,
And the truth reveals you've been living in a fantasy...

I was a court gesture when I played in your game,
I knew that I'd lose my hand in the end,
When I took a gamble,
On something quite fragile,
Believing that you'd somehow change...
