Lyrics

She presses flowers in an overdue book That she has hidden under the bed Next to a cigar box held together by string Full of letters that she’ll never send She keeps the TV on when she sleeps To drown out the noise in her head So she always dreams of the amazing machines From the late night advertisements Always on the outside But she’s never wanted to fit in You could look your whole life You’d never find one like her again She leaves the radio on for the dogs When she heads in to work every day She likes to think that they dance round the house As soon as they’re sure she’s away She claims not to own an umbrella Doesn’t mind getting caught in the rain Says she’s quite happy being alone But if she wasn’t she’d smile through the pain Always on the outside But she’s never wanted to fit in You could look your whole life You’d never find one like her again As each twilight fades out You’re left to wonder how You became the fool who let her go Now you’re on the outside Wanting so bad to get back in You’ll try the rest of your life Cause you’ll never find one like her again Dave Sills: vocal, acoustic guitar, harmonium Kenny Kryger: cello
