Just Like Me
by Shawn Mullins



She seemed almost demented
As she frantically repented
For the crime in which she filled her empty bowl,
It was empty like her soul

She kneeled inside the confession booth,
And she told that holy man the truth
But the booth was empty,
Frozen black as coal,
It was damp and cold.

Where are you gonna run to now?
You lost what faith you had somehow
Your show is over,
It's time to take a bow
Where are you gonna run to now?

She spends her nights with lonely men
And she goes too far every now and then.
But it's her longest running show
And the oldest job around,
They say she's the best in town.

Where are you gonna run to now?
You lost what pride you had somehow
Your show is over,
It's time to take a bow
Where are you gonna run to now?

Now in 5 more years she'll be 23
And in a lot of ways she's just like me
She gives away her body,
I give away my soul.

We're always searching for life's treasures to unfold.
We give it all to you
Yet we have no pot of gold.

So where are we gonna run to now?
We lost what love we had somehow,
We're on this one way highway
Until the bitter end
But where are we gonna run to then?
