A Heroine's Song

Angels standing side by side
They all wait to cross the line
Empty treasure chests lie
To greet their blurry eager eyes

They said Lord we passed the test
Did everything to be the best
Now my heart is beating slower
Think it's time I had some rest

Ticking boxes, hypnotised
Waiting for the golden prize
To greet their blurry eager eyes

I've been so good, I haven't sinned
I'll be patient just a little longer,
I know I will win

Too late to turn back
I'll carry on this way

Another chance for us

Not to question
We understand this is our

Be a model daughter, wife
And a mother
This is the only
Way we know!

We'll never fail to act
To deliver
This is our culture of

But something's not right
I cannot explain
Too late to turn back
I'll carry on this way

She gave her heart, she gave it all
She lived a heroine's life untold
But her name won't survive the history books
Her contribution was too small
