She Fights For Her Life


(oren lavie - her morning elegance)

Sun been down for days
A pretty flower in a vase
A slipper by the fireplace
A cello lying in its case

Soon she's down the stairs
Her morning elegance she wears
The sound of water makes her dream
Awoken by a cloud of steam
She pours a daydream in a cup
A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And She goes...
Nobody knows

Sun been down for days
A winter melody she plays
The thunder makes her contemplate
She hears a noise behind the gate
Perhaps a letter with a dove
Perhaps a stranger she could love

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And She goes...
Nobody knows

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
Where people are pleasently strange
And counting the change
And She goes...
Nobody knows

hei :) thanks a lot, i like the song too :)
especially the idea of fighting for her life when doing all the ordinary things everyone does..
thanks :)

yeah that's exactly what struck a chord with me!
how we can live our lives so normally, doing chores, meeting friends and be so broken up inside but 'nobody knows'.
and there's a surreal feel about the song. and the video really complemented the song.
oh i can't get over the song... it'll pass i guess :)

i like how there seems to be a thin line between real and surreal, dream and reality for the girl.
