No Place For You

  • Nobody claims to
    See it coming
    Nobody blames you
    Can't help thinking

    A marriage license, a job was waiting
    By your mid-30's
    You feel unholy

    no place for you
    To be a girl
    No place for you
    They closed your world

    No place for you
    To live and grow
    No place for you
    That I know

    approaching mirrors
    Waiting tables
    Fix your lipstick
    Don't disappoint those
    Who have nothing to do this evening
    No day is safe from thoughts of you leaving

    no place for you
    To be a girl
    No place for you
    They closed your world

    No place for you
    To live and grow
    No place for you
    That I know

    Just add water
    Someone's done for
    I'm getting nervous and there's one more
    Just add water
    Someone's done for
    I'm getting nervous there goes one more

    No day is safe from thoughts of you leaving
    Marriage license
    Can't help thinking
    It's all for nothing
    She's so unholy
    Up in the skies now
    She's getting away

    No place for you
    To be a girl
    No place for you
    They closed your world

    No place for you
    To live and grow
    No place for you
    That I know Writer/s: PAUL WESTERBERG
