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?
