"Manchester Girl" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
She hides in the library reading Henry Miller books
'Til they flash the lights, it's time to go
When she was a little kid she said
"Dad, I don't know why I feel so penniless inside"

She's on the promenade
She's looking for a dress
She's locked outside a world
Just a Manchester girl

Oh, I'll meet you there
By the old newsstand
Oh, I'll meet you there tonight

Shoot out at a neighbor's house
She pulls the covers over her head
She's counting the shots as they go by

In Pandora's litter box
Well, it's getting mighty high
That cat's gonna keep her up at night

Another scary dream
Another cigarette
She's locked outside a world
Just a Manchester girl

Oh, I'll meet you there
By the old newsstand
Oh, I'll meet you there tonight
