She walked out through the snow
She left the body there
The flakes fell to her face
And her face fell to the ground
She listened, as the chaos swelled around
While the church ahead began to ring the bells

That thundering sound
Lifted her to her feet and she walked on

She continued down the road
The monotony had made her restless beyond words
She found a shovel and dug a big pothole
Then a carriage crashed

And made a big and deafening sound
Police gathered round
The flakes fell to her face
While her eyes turned them to water

The owner yelled and called her terrible names
(Whore! Wench! What have you done?)
They cuffed her up and took her shovel away
But then the sun came out
And dried the stuff from her face
She smiled sweet, apologized, and walked herself away

Now you're here in my heart
And you know who you are
No one's going to clean up this mess
The wheels have fallen off
The current's gonna take you where you want
But you keep on running
The current's gonna make you who you are

You know your smile's growing stronger
While your stride is getting longer
You're gonna make it out
On your own
