I like to be by myself
when I’m sad, I don’t trust
the people round here want to build me up, make me feel like a good woman
a good woman is something, man
I’m not saying that I’m bad
I just want to feel sad
til I come around

And when I come around
all of my thoughts are gonna fall down
gonna make a joyful sound
you wait, I'm gonna bless this town, bless this town, bless this town
so I go into the dark
into the dark with noone near
I want to listen to my fears
sing me a song my loves
sing me the song that you sang to me
when I was just a kid
I want to cry just like I did
til I come around

and I swing out over the sand
over the great green circle of grass
where is my lover now
that I’m in the straps
holding onto the chains
I thought I saw him run past me
caught a little light on his eye
and his eyes are dark and kind
and I fix a little hope on them
and the hope comes tearing out
and I’m tearing down on the ground
and I’m tearing at the lawn and the sky
at the lawn and the sky
