She homed with thieves Kicked up dirty leaves She was a maniac No one's heart attack She got around Slept on the bad side of town She was cooler than you Way cooler than me She was true, all blinded and bruised She didn't give a f*ck No she had given up She was alive She was caught on fire She was everything She was all of this She opened up and laid it all right there She said, "I don't mind No, no I don't care I'll help you shovel out my shallow hole And I know I know they're threatening But at least we're not the ones carrying Such heavy heavy heavy stoning stones And yeah I know they'll get you down They'll do you in and they'll drag it out 'Cause me and you, we are one of a kind" She liked to lose Never wore Sunday shoes She found her luck in wells and corner stores and jails She was crazy A downtown kind of baby Always dangerous, she got me down on my knees She made it rain She called the wind and then it came Oh with the wave of her hand She brought the sunshine right in She was the sky Beyond steeple and the choir Oh, the preacher's amen His hallelujah child She opened up and laid it all right there She said, "I don't mind No, no I don't care I'll help you shovel out my shallow hole And I know I know they are threatening But at least we're not the ones carrying Such heavy heavy heavy stoning stones So when your bones are broke and you're all alone And the fog's so thick you can't see up close Just know that I will end up strangled too And when the floods they come all rushing in And the boat is full and you can't get in Oh, it's okay if you don't want to swim And when you're swallowed up, oh, don't you cry Just give right in, don't try to fight 'Cause baby I wouldn't pay no mind There's nothing you can do" They'll have you coughing up your colors They'll have you coughing up your colors She sang the blues Out of time and out of tune Spoke no silver spoon Only simple truths She was a friend, stabbed backs and broke plans She would give you his coat Or put nails through his hand She was wise, full of magic and life Oh you could see it in her eyes Oh yeah I saw it in her eyes She was more than this Oh way more than this She was everything She was all of this
