By: The Wallflowers

So long ago I don't remember when
That's when they say I lost my only friend
They say she died easy of a brokenheart disease
As I listen through the cemetery trees
I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
I've long broken all of human law
Now it always seemed like such a waste
She always had a pretty face
I wondered, why she hung around this place

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be somethin' better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

She said it's cold
It feels like Independence Day
And I can't break away from this parade
But there's got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed.

And I seen the sign up ahead
At the county-line bridge
Saying all is good and nothingness is dead
Running til she's out of breath
She ran until there's nothing left.
She hit the end
It's just her window ledge

Repeat Chorus

This place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine but the engine doesn't turn
With smells of cheap old wine and cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes, I'd think I'd like to watch it burn.

Now I sit alone
And I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain't changed but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between
These city walls of dying dreams
I think her death it must be killing me

Hey, hey, hey-

Repeat Chorus
