lyrics

ROOM 21

There was a woman who touched me
She was working in a motel where I used to hang out
She gave me a roof over my head
I never paid anything but love
She wore her soul on the outside
There was nothing about that girl that I didn‘t like
 Skin and bones a bleached crown
A lifeless feather flying to the moon
Chorus:
She’s shooting for the stars
Drifting apart
Begging for sleep
She’s in too deep
She was rock star in her own way
Never accepted half of anything
But she never broke through
She needed someone to lean onto
It’s hard to be growing up
When there’s no one in this world to count on
Skin and bones a bleached crown
A lifeless feather flying to the moon.
Chorus:
She’s shooting for the stars
Drifting apart
Fighting for sleep
She’s in too deep
And I walked with her
And she walked with me
And there’s a road ahead
Where you will feel free
I decorated her grave
with a painting she’d made for me
It shows a setting sun
and a dog on the run
