Portrait of a Girl IVY
Portrait of a girl
Canvas of ages
The stage is hers
Demure and practiced beauty
Holding all enthralled

Portrait of a girl
Object of rumour
A pose at play
They say
'She's fairest of them all'

Paint her in
One colour ends and one begins
Brush away what's stray
Add the finishing touch

The rapture, cold as a pearl
Now the portrait has captured the girl
Now the portrait has captured the girl

Portrait of a girl

MATT
Don't mind me
I'm just watching

IVY
Painted illusion

MATT
It looks just like you

IVY
She'll play her part
She sees that she's a work of art

MATT
Just understand
I'm taken in

IVY
Paint her in
Watching on colour end
And one begin
Brush away what's stray
There's disguise in her eyes

MATT
Don't know what to say
I'm scared I say too much ?

IVY
Add shadows that dance across her skin
Block the doubt that cries out within her

IVY & MATT
Stripped bare beneath all the layers

IVY
Would you recognise the girl lying there?

MATT
I know there's love lying here

IVY
Sought after
And trapped like a pearl
Now the portrait has captured the girl
Now the portrait has captured the girl

IVY & MATT
Daring you to fall
Fairest of the all
