lyrics

Things that once were so important
Things in life that were a constant
Suddenly obliterated simply blown away
All those friends and true believers
Victims of some cruel deceivers
All for nothing all is lost or is there still a way
They’ve taken all her dreams away
Won’t listen when she tries to say
It doesn’t matter anyway
That she will always be
Magdalen
Magdalen

Never slow to understanding
But without her soulmate bonding
Finds herself alone and drifting lost and floating free
Not in sight but always watching
Arrows loose but there for notching
Catching strangers looking at her quickly look away
Once in focus of the crowd
Name no longer spoken loud
Yet her gaze is still unbowed
She will always be
Magdalen
Magdalen

Gradually reconstructing
Some might say she’s contradicting
Their instruction to desist from radical decree
She will brook no hostile rival
Engineer her own survival
Spark contagious flame revival plain for all to see
All remember what she said
Simply drawn in what we’ve read
Inspiration bannerhead
She will always be
Magdalen
Magdalen
