Pollyanna

She bravely displays
such ridiculous faith that someday he'll say
"How do I love thee? Right to the grave."
Pollyanna puts her hand up, five fingers to a flood
If she's washed away, she'll just say she's swimming.
She has such sincere devotion to the idea of true love
and how it's beautiful even when it's sinking... sinking.
She says "Heathcliff and Catherine,
what a miserable pair.
I can do better, as a charming Jane Eyre."
Polyanna puts her hand up, one fist against a flood.
If she's washed away, she'll still think she's winning.
She has such terrible devotion to the idea of true love
how it's beautiful even if it's killing... killing.
Pollyanna puts her hand up, five fingers to a flood
If she's washed away, she'll just think she's swimming.
She has such sincere devotion to the idea of true love
and how it's beautiful even when it's sinking.
Pollyanna... Pollyanna puts her hand up, five fingers to a flood...
