She is a harbour,
And has not harbour.
She is only 'she' in inverted commas.
She's not well aware
In certain areas;
Lost girl in there,
Building stupid castles in the stupid air.
She lost a boy she loved
Because he was Maya,
Always Maya.
Harbour, Harbour;
No man is her father.
She fought for something holy,
Found only the dreams of Don Quixote,
Fumbling to get back what's stolen,
Thinking pain could be plastered over.
She lost all else she loved,
Same time she lost that boy she loved.
And they said, "Call it Maya.
Go ahead call it Maya."
But it's not all Maya, well,
A broken fourteen year old girl
Hasn't been allowed to tell
What actually happened in hell,
What happened in hell.
No man is her father.
Harbour, Harbour;
No man is her father.
