Slave

This song is by Carly Simon and appears on the album Playing Possum (1975).

Listening for your footsteps
Just waiting like a fool
Burning with a fever only you can cool
The clock beside my pillow
Has ticked away the night
Like a heartbeat mocking me
Until the light

Gotta stop these thoughts about you
Gotta learn to live without you
Gotta find some freedom for this weary slave
'Cause I'm hungry for you
And I'm longing for you
And I'm burning for you

I worship your opinions
And I imitate your ways
I try to make you grace me
With a word of praise
However much I tell myself
That I'm strong and free and brave
I'm just another woman
Raised to be a slave

Slave, nothing but a slave
Mind of a slave
Body of a slave

(Repeat Chorus)

I find I gave away the soul
That I wanted you to save
I'm just another woman
Raised to be a slave

Hungry for you
And longing for you
Burning for you
And I'm longing for you
Burning for you
And I'm longing for you
Longing for you
