Between a scream and a stare

Updated on October 6, 2011

Gift wrapped and tied up

pretty for you

unfetter me

you may see the truth

im many things

that you cant see at all

take a look at me cowboy

im not your china doll

cut to the scene

im dusty as hell

high heel on a suitcase

leg out for the sell

thumb in the air

first truck and im gone

not sure if you care

in fact im sure you don't

but im bending to break

to get out of this jail

to not be called baby

id shed my own shell


its when...

its when im alone

and you're somewhere

in a drunken drone

you can't tell me

with my hands in my hair

somewhere in between

a scream and a stare

that you are something..........im going to bear

that's why...

i've just got to go.

pack up my love and

you can keep the panty hose

i've just...

got to get out of this place

its no longer an option

now its a race.

Fork over my heart

from your dinner plate

i've got my life waiting

i don't want to be late

boots on the porch

its the sweetest sound

that ive heard in a long one

and im not turning round

because....

This time


........................I am leaving


...........................................................without

..............................................................................you
