"Poor Girl"

You sat at home
The windows tinted black
It hits you hard
And you cried so long
Life turned and wandered
Never to come back again
Takes what she gives
You don't feel sorry for her
When you fell out of the Starlight Inn
You were too hurt to walk
Too bad to begin
I looked at the sign
But I couldn't feel sad for you
Takes what she gives
You don't cry when you kiss her
Poor little girl ran away from home
I try to explain why she won't say a thing
Sad, sad thing
I'm so far away now
How can I say why she won't talk at all
She holds the deck of cards
She wants to be alone
"I'll be very ill
And I tried waking up
Now I want to be alone"
When you ran out of Pete's Hotel
You didn't look so good
And you didn't feel so well
"Hold me tight"
But I couldn't get it right
Takes what she gives you...
Poor little girl...
She holds a deck of cards
She wants to be alone
She still drinks in the dark
The radio is left on late
She saw a madman fight and break it all
'Cause she hated himself
And she felt better off
'Cause she was only drunk
