Suddenly I See

Her face is a map of the world, is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl, she's a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see
This is what I want to be
Suddenly I see
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world, like walking the world
You can hear she's a beautiful girl, she's a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she's born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you're trying to remember what you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see
This is what I want to be
Suddenly I see
Why the hell it means so much to me

And she's taller than most
And she's looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from the page of a magazine
She makes me feel like I can be a tower, a big strong tower
She's got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see...

Suddenly I see
This is what I want to be
Suddenly I see
Why the hell it means so much to me

The words and music are KT Tunstall, but the feeling is all mine. It's taken me a while, but I finally feel like I'm getting my life together, and before me I see all my sisters, who have blazed the trail, found the path and shown me the way. I love you all, and cannot thank you enough.
