She came back so far
Stepped back from the moment that she knew she would fall
Moved into a crowded little room down a dimly lit hall

Her eyes were a mystery
One moment light then tired and scared
Said that she was happy now, hoped he wouldn't find her here

She goes out walkin'
Late September when the leaves are all gone
Sometimes she stops and turns around,
You know that memory lingers on

She says I know,
I think I understand
Some people walk protected,
Safe from troubles they'd never understand
No matter how I try
I feel like sinking sand
I wake up in the night
Afraid that I might
Slide through your hands

Underneath the twisted trees
And underneath the eyes of everyone
He came back one night, screaming out her name
Crying "look what you have done"
We just stood there watchin'
Wishing there was somewhere we could run away and hide
It took two men to hold him down and to get him outside

I wish I was a river
A river running free and runnin' wild
I'd wrap my waves around her
And carry her off long into the night

She says I know
I think I understand
Some people walk protected
Safe from troubles they'd never understand
And no matter how I try
I feel like sinking sand
I wake up in the night
Afraid that I might
Slide through your hands
