lyrics

[Esmerelda:]
Came up here, but I'm still deaf
To a world I never knew;
Still can't make a living here--
Nothing to do.

[her abusive sister:]
Esmerelda, sister, dear
Where you're going to go from here?
You've got no where else to go without me;
Now I just wish this much you could see.

[Esmerelda:]
Left my old country;
they weren't much use
Did not know where to turn

Got to ditch my sister, now.
Before she makes me like her.
You've got to just break me free
Before I'm burned.

[abusive sister]
Esmerelda, can't you see
What they're trying to do to me.
Ain't nothing but myself in this whole world
I can't control when my fist is furled.

Esmerelda, Esmerelda, Esmerelda.
