"Liza Radley (b-side to Start!)" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Liza Radley, see the girl with long hair
See her creeping 'cross summer lawns at midnight
And all the people in the town where we live say she's not quite right
She don't fit in with a small town
They just can't understand why she's doesn't stay in hospital
In a darkened room it's for their lives only she cries
Liza Radley, see her jump through loneliness
Liza Radley, take me when you go

And as the people pass by, their heads in the air
On to with their life's, she records a lonely sigh,
But no matter what they say, in her mind she knows,
Their dream of life they won't never find

And all the people in the town where we live say she's not quite right
She don't fit in with a small town
They just can't understand she's doesn't stay in hospital
In a darkened room it's for their lives only she cries.
Liza Radley, I pledge myself to you alone.
But she kissed my face and said Love means nothing at all
She kissed my face and said Life means nothing at all

    General CommentOnce upon a time, back when I cared, this song was me. It also makes me think of an old Czech movie called "And Give My Love to the Swallows" that portrays a girl like this who was a Czech resistance fighter against Nazi occupation.
