lyrics

This is a story about a woman who loved reality
You might know her.

The woman who loved reality
Only believes in actions
You can feel whatever you want
But she values what you do

And when you say you’re sorry because you wanted to do something
She knows you may be sorry but that you didn’t really want to
No you didn’t really want to

The woman who loved reality reads fiction sometimes
But she spends a lot of time exploring gears

The woman who loved reality wants you to know
She hasn’t been a girl for the past eleven years

The woman who loved reality goes to Maker Faires
And plays roller derby

The woman who loved reality
Is taking public transportation
To the library while she’s scanning through her phone

For all the conversations
That she gets to be a part of
In the interconnected human network
And at the same time while she gets to be left alone
She doesn’t mind being alone

The woman who loved reality doesn’t believe
That the existence of God is a relevant question

The woman who loved reality wants you to know
That the size of her body isn’t a subject worth mention

The woman who loved reality knows how to code
And she won’t give you her public key

The woman who loved reality
Knows that no one loves her
And past collected data suggest that no one will

But she’s got a lot of friends and there’s just so much to explore
And so her calendar is filled
And her life is mostly filled

The woman who loved reality believes that honesty
Is the only way to help two people sort out what to do

The woman who loved reality can fix a sink
And fix a drink and fix a router but she can’t fix you

The woman who loved reality will be at Dragon*Con
But she’s not planning to cosplay

The woman who loved reality
Still gets surprised when she’s reminded of how much time has passed, and she knows that the
Paradox of infinity and finality
Means we’ve got to make everything we’ve got last
Before it disappears forever, we’ve got to make it last

The world exactly as it is is all the world we've got
And everything is interesting
The whole world is just so interesting

And life's so short to understand it,
Life's so short to understand it.

This was a story about a woman who loved reality
You might know her.
