Nellie Bly

I'm no Lion Tamer
but you know me well
I can sure crack a whip
around your tail.

I'm no Amazon
but I can navigate
the river like a trailblazer
my jar of fireflies inoculates-

Shines my way
down your Heart of Darkness.
Shines my way

Wake up – Wake up -
Don't blame me.
You're the one who turned on the light.

Wake up – Wake up -
Don't blame me.
You're the one who turned on the light.

Everybody wants me not to want you,
a trial by fire, you'll put me through.
I'm no Smoke Jumper,
but I learned to surf at 45,

Riding the waves through your Gates of Hell
I've never felt so alive.

Wake up – Wake up -
You can't Tame me.
Everyone should have been warning you.

Wake up – Wake up-
You can't Tame me.
But it will make me laugh if you try to.
