Like Everybody (Nobody) Else.

Like Everybody (Nobody) Else.

She was found in desire,
She was lost in the world,
Such an inhuman fire,
In such a mortal girl,
She had an uncommon heart,
With a common seed,
Wished on a single star,
Her universal need,

She wanted love to be (so true),
Like everybody else,
But she was so naive (so new),
Like nobody else,
She was lost in the dream (so blue),
Like everybody else,
But so careful to please (so few),
Like nobody else,

She was wrecked like a ship,
In the storm of her sea,
An unintentional slip,
On the shores of her beach,
She had an unusual calm,
In the usual stir,
She was saved all along,
From an unhallowed Earth,

She wanted love to be (so true),
Like everybody else,
But she was so naive (so new),
Like nobody else,
She was lost in the dream (so blue),
Like everybody else,
But so careful to please (so few),
Like nobody else,

O', she never bled (so long),
In her cut-up life,
She never said (so wrong),
As her cuts fell in rife,

She wanted love to be (so true),
Like everybody else,
But she was so naive (so new),
Like nobody else,
She was lost in the dream (so blue),
Like everybody else,
But so careful to please (so few),
Like nobody else,

She was founded in ire,
She was rapt in a curse,
So absorbed in the fire,
Her sympathetic worse,
You'd think she'd give way,
Her virtueless trust,
But her hope so remained,
In her unyielding bust,

She wanted love to be (so true),
Like everybody else,
But she was so naive (so new),
Like nobody else,
She was lost in the dream (so blue),
Like everybody else,
But so careful to please (so few),
Like nobody else,

O', she was everybody,
Yet somebody,
Like nobody else.
