Carrie's a cold one, colder than the winter sun

Even the clerk is checking her out 
She's unaware that she owns the scene 
Though everyone goes out of their way for her 

And all her life reads like some fairy tale 
But her world is so frail 
What did I tell you, she never looks out her window to see the setting sun 
You tell her the skies are blue, she'll say the storms will come 
Because every day is rain, every day is rain...
