„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.“

—  KT Tunstall Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist 1975

"Suddenly I See".
Eye to the Telescope (2004)
Contexto: 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.

„Voodoo girl

But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets too close to her,
the pins stick farther in.“

—  Tim Burton American filmmaker 1958

Variante: But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets too close to her,

the pins stick further in.
