"Witchka" is one song that grew to be something entirely other than what inspired it. It started with the words of a small child and ended with the image of a beautiful goth girl/priestess-in-training who's coming of age, stealing hearts as she goes. Read more at: s00j.livejournal.com/214752.html


Sweet sixteen and bold as love
the danger I've been dreaming of

Sweet sixteen and here she comes; I see the
candlelight from her window.
She just bought her first book of spells--
one step further from the wishing wells of
childhood. She's a woman grown.
I tell you, girls, if I had known,
I'd do it all over exactly the same.
She walked into my life and I sang

Witchka! Where have you been?
Tell me 'bout the trouble you've been in!

Twenty-six and mad as hell,
who'd'a thought that I would fall for this
turned-around, pouty-lipped Tinkerbelle?
One step further from the wishing well, but
what's her coven gonna say?
All I know, when I see her face, she makes
every little fairy princess fade away.
Here she comes, and I say

Witchka! Where have you been?
Tell me 'bout the Mischief....oh, Witchka!

Book of shadows and a lock of hair,
she holds me there, she does not care.

From her little pointy boots to her pouty lip,
you can tell she's thinking herself the shit.
Well, who am I to teach her to watch and wait?
A witch decides a witch's fate.
She's gonna learn the hard way--that's all right.
She says she likes it hard some nights.
Keep a close eye on her witchy ways.
She'll surprise us all one day!

Say, Witchka! Where have you been?
Tell me 'bout the trouble you've been in.
Witchka, my, how you have grown--
time to make this world your own!
Witchka! What have you done?
Everything from raising hell to having fun!
Witchka! Where have you been!
Tell me 'bout the mischief....oh

Book of shadows and a lock of hair,
she holds me there, she does not care (2x)
Sweet sixteen and bold as love,
the danger I've been dreaming of (2x)
