She checks her watch
It's just past four
She's walking into the liquor store
She's inside out
And quick to dream
With empty pockets she can barely breathe

And she waits...
And she waits...

Doesn't matter what they say
Just keep on walking by
You can open up their eyes
You'll get what's yours in time
So just keep on, wishing
On the stars outside your window
I know my voice will guide you home

And the only change
That comes her way
Are the nickels she finds at the entrance way
Will someone please
Clean up this mess?
Her spilled milk life has stained her dress

She's on the floor, someone get help (and she waits)
She lost control, then she lost herself (and she waits)

Doesn't matter what they say
Just keep on walking by
You can open up their eyes
You'll get what's yours in time
So just keep on, wishing
On the stars outside your window
I know my voice will guide you home
I know my voice will

And she waits...
And she waits...

Doesn't matter what they say
Just keep on walking by
You can open up their eyes
You'll get what's yours in time
So just keep on, wishing
On the stars outside your window
I know my voice will guide you home

I know my voice will guide you home
I know my voice will...

    General Comment^ Boo TRL. But I'd still be happy for them. Pat went to my high school and he's very talented. They deserve what they get.

    General Commentit might be on trl--but who really cares? so what if a band gets big, as long as they don't become arrogant assholes..
    i get from this, it's blunt.
    it doesn't matter what they say, just keep on going.

    General CommentI really like the story in the song. Its very uplifting for people who have been put down for things theyve done. I can REALLY relate to the lyrics and I just think this song is awesome. Besides the first two songs on the cd I think this is my fav and if this does make it to TRL Ill be happy cause Oct fall is so great

    General CommentThe more I listen to this song the more I'm obsessed with it. It kind of reminds me of myself. And it helps me out when I'm having a bad day.

    General CommentI htink this song is a vague reference to poverty cause he keeps on making a reference to change. Its like who gives a fuck if your in a lower class, do what you want and no matter how hard things get you can make it through...i wish it was that easy...
