This is the Way?

Miss Erika Davies is familiar to San Diego music fans for her devotion to the old-timey ballad and her frequent performances at Lestat's West. Visit her MySpace page to learn more.

Its prickly thorns
and unicorns
my fortune told by day
by night, alone
the moon
half shown
has kept the sun at bay

I've been left out
a dame
an item to be won or praised
i need some time
i need some space
... need you to go away

A fondness for romance
my body does the dancing
while my mind is in a trance

goodnight goodnight
to find the knight
he'll carry me and say ...

This is the way i've imagined it
so ... this is the way ...
