Meg Christian - Nina lyrics

Nina, where does your heart take you today
To play with Negra, Rose and Maria
I sadly recall the friends of my childhood
You my love, bear the fruit of my pain

Do you ride wild horses in Amazon battles
I rode like a lady except when alone
I wept for dead soldiers then burned all my journals

Your muscles are shining as you dance with each other
I wore shiny stockings and was led to the floor
I learned how to follow but then never got married

Nina my daughter, sometimes I resent you
Your laughter, your lovers, your courage to feel
I was never allowed to love Eloisa
Yet you sleep so warm in the arms of your friends

But as I lie awake and hear your soft pleasure
My resentment fades and I shelter your love
For the outside world makes you cry all too often
And because of you, I too hold a woman tonight

Nina, where does your heart take you today
To play with Negra, Rose and Maria
You will sadly recall your pages of childhood
And women unborn will bear the fruit of your pain
