Over your shoulder, please dont mind me
If my eyes have fallen onto your magazine
Oh, Ive been watching and wondering
Why your face is changing with every line you read

For all those lines and circles to me a mystery
Eve pulled down the apple and gave a taste to me
If she could it would be wonderful
But my pride is in the way
I cannot read to save my life
Im so ashamed to say

I live in silence, afraid to speak
Of my life of darkness because I cannot read

For all those lines and circles to me a mystery
Eve pulled down the apple and gave a taste to me
If she could it would be wonderful
Then I wouldnt need someone elses eyes
To see whats in front of me
No one guiding me

It makes me humble to be so green
At what every kid can do when he learns A to Z

For all those lines and circles just frighten me
And I fear that Ill be trampled if you dont reach for me
Before I run Ill have to take a fall
And when I pick myself up so slowly
Ill devour every one of those
Books in the tower of knowledge

Songwriters
Natalie Merchant;Robert Buck
