stone cathy

mp3 is located here

memories look just like shoes
head down heart is bruised
she can feel her pocket change
wants her life to do the same thing
probably never will still she smiles
the ghost is home again

she believes in angels and runaway trains
that her father will come back to her one day
she doesn’t like it that her mother drinks the rent
but that’s something you will never hear her say

a frozen face this photograph
a tiny world she folds in half
she walks away from time to time
to feel the way she used to
but she can’t get down
from this hole in the ground
and she doesn’t have a coat
is it over is it under
oh do they wonder why

she believes in angels and runaway trains
that her father will come back to her one day
she doesn’t like it that her mother drinks the rent
but that’s something you will never hear her say

no breakin’ her heart in two
stone cathy
know tellin’ her what to do
stone cathy
hard as nails cheap as dirt
lace on gasoline
cathy turned to stone…at seventeen

she believes in angels and runaway trains
that her father will come back to her one day
she doesn’t like it that her mother drinks the rent
but that’s something you will never hear her say

she believes that anger is a runaway train
and her father rode it out of here one day
she doesn’t like it that her mother laid the track
but that’s something you will never hear her say
