"I've got a problem I need you to fix," Penelope's saying between every stitch.
I make the connection, she's stealing her words from Carroll's indifference about all the birds...
but I didn't read that one, or it wasn't a favorite at least.
Can you tell me is it sadness that makes all the sparrows cry?
Can you speak slowly? Leave your shoes out by the barn door if you're crying too.
She's dropping her needles wiping her tears as I say
"I've been a child now for twenty odd years, and you can imagine how I must feel,
every time the sun comes up I wonder if it's really real."
And the paint falls when the water hits the wall,
and though my arms are out, Penelope just keeps on falling.
Desperate and fragile, you climb into my arms.
Like fair weathered sympathy, you need me to protect you from harm.
Cause you say no one understands you like me,
well I find that quite hard to believe.
