By Madeleine Roberts

You’ve mistaken me for  
Righteousness I fear 
A woman on her own 
(She thinks she’s on her own) 
Will wager with the devil 
When she fights alone 
(She thinks she fights alone) 
Some words kick up 
Mountains in the mind 
And that’s how they’re true 
You’ve mistaken me for  
More than I could be  
Yoked to a love  
Greater than fear 
I fear you’ve mistaken me 
Though I’ll admit you’ve never 
Been mistaken before
