Now that I'm a Woman

America

Once, I can't remember
I was, long ago, someone strange.
I was innocent and wise,
And full of pain.
Now that I'm a woman
Everything is strange.
Once, when I was searching
Somewhere out of reach,
Far away,
In a place I could not find
Nor heart obey.
Now that I'm a woman
Everything is changed.
Everything is changed.
Everything has changed.



That's all I've got to Say

America

I've had time to write a book
About the way you act and look,
But I haven't got a paragraph.
Words are always getting in my way.
Anyway, I love you.
That's all I have to tell you.
That's all I've got to say.

And now, I'd like to make a speech
About the love that touches each,
But stumbling, I would make you laugh.
I feel as though my tongue were made of clay.
Anyway, I love you.
That's all I have to tell you.
I'm not a man of poetry.
Music isn't one with me.
It runs from me.
It runs from me.

(Alternating Lir and Amalthea)
And I tried to write a symphony / Once when I was searching
But I lost the melody / Somewhere out of reach
Alas I only finished half / Far away
And finish I suppose I never may / In a place I could not find
Anyway, I love you / Nor heart obey
That's all I have to tell you / Now that I'm a woman
That's all I've got to say / Now I know the way
That's all I've got to say / Now I know the way

(Together)
That's all I've got to say
