I am not afraid to be your lady
I am not afraid to be your whore
I am not afraid to be your future
I am not afraid to be your soil
In which you plant your seed
Flowers, they sprout from me
My fragrance in the breeze
You must nurture me, please

I am not afraid to be your baby
I am not afraid to be your strength
I am not afraid to be open wide
I am not afraid to be glutinous
The essence of glue
I will stick to you
Through earthquakes and moods
If ever one thing was true

I am not afraid to wind it, wind it
I am not afraid to keep your pace
I am not afraid to create my queendom  
I am not afraid to take my place

I am not
afraid
