Queen Of The Underground

Michael Joy
Queen Of The Underground

She bends to her words
Mending in time a tune
Of a cold life below
Cold flowers ‘round her strewn
And she sings of a crime
It’s an old and doleful sound
Sometimes I hide from her
She’s the queen of the underground
Orphans from the land of the sun
Know just what she means
Who wants to go down with her
Who wants to see what there is to see
Who wants to see what there is to see
Some fight to be heard
Others live to be found
She can’t play those games
She’s the queen of the underground
(Chorus)
Who wants to go
Bathe in the river down below
Forget your name
If she holds you in her arms
You’ll never be the same
