The Ballad of Cleopatra

But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I’ll be on time

I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
But that’s all in the past now, gone with the wind
Now a nurse in a white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
It’s a bed and a bathroom, and a place for the end

Leave a note on your bed, let your mother know you’re safe,
And by the time she wakes, we’ll have driven through the state

Oh Angela, it’s a long time coming,
Oh Angela, spent your whole life running
