lyrics

They say there’s a fine line
between brilliance and insanity
It’s true for the professor
Her wrinkles are deep
Her make-up is a mess

Her house is a museum
Full of books and artefacts
She’s proud to show you around
Her stories are grand
Her smile is a fake

She’s lonely; she’s living all alone
She’s lonely, but she won’t let anyone come close

A black cat visits
It isn’t hers; it just drops by
Just like the men in her life
They came to her
But none stayed

Her computer screen lights up the night
Words dance around as her ideas flow into the keys
Smoke from her cigarette spirals up and up
She’s made it; she’s successful; but at what price?

She’s lonely; she’s living all alone
She’s lonely, but she won’t let anyone come close

Her students are afraid; their fate is in her hands
In a fit of rage, she could blow their chances
She will have her way with a smile, with a sneer, or a well-placed lie

She’s lonely; she’s living all alone
She’s lonely, but she won’t let anyone come close

They say there’s a fine line
between brilliance and insanity

Her new single 'Call of the Last Wildcat' is a portrait of the beautiful and fierce Scottish Wildcat, a UK species on the brink of extinction. ... more
