"Clare's Scarf" as written by John C. Lombardo and Mary Jeanne Ramsey....
Now she is living in the garret
From fear she never leaves her home
The neighbors sunning on their porches
The world enchanting down below
She knows them like they were a family
But it is she they never see.

Ooh Clare wraps the scarf around her head
The one she loves, rubious red
Peers through the looking glass
Her heart sinks slowly.

Clare spends time with books
Of fancy riddled rhymes
And she tries hard at learning new words
She's making lists of every vow
She'll never keep.

Clare wraps the scarf around her head
The one she loves, rubious red
Peers through the looking glass
Her heart sinks slowly.

When sorting through her mind
She finds it hard to find
A memory that is all her own.
Ooh you took all I ever wanted,
As though your own.

Clare wakes up, morning starts with a parade
The flags were snapping in the sun
She saw old soldiers on display
Bowed and greyed but not afraid.

Clare wraps the scarf around her head
The one she loves, rubious red
Peers through the looking glass
She walks on slowly.
Ooh you took all I ever wanted
As though your own.

    "At the time of writing this song, like Clare, Mary lived in a third floor apartment and overheard many of the conversations of those living around her while never actually being seen by them."
