Lyrics

(Source: I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got)

Each of these,
My three babies,
I will carry with me.
For myself,
I ask no one else will be
Mother to these three.
And, of course,
I'm like a wild horse
But there's no other way I could be.
Water & feed
Are not tools that I need
For the thing that I've chosen to be.
In my soul,
My blood & my bones,
I have wrapped your cold bodies around me, oh,
The face on you,
The smell of you,
Will always be with me.
Each of these,
My three babies,
I was not willing to leave.
Though I tried,
I blasphemed & denied,
I know they will be returned to me.
Each of these,
My babies,
Have brought you closer to me.
No longer mad like a horse,
I'm still wild, but not lost
From the thing that I've chosen to be.
And it's 'cos you've thrilled me,
Silenced me,
Stilled me,
Proved things I never believed, oh,
The face on you,
The smell of you,
Will always be with me.
Each of these,
My three babies,
I will carry with me.
For myself,
I ask no one else will be
Mother to these three.
