Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl.“

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.

A shepherdess of sheep.
Her flocks are thoughts. She keeps them white;

And she never gives in
She just changes her mind.“
