Winona pulls up in her car, checks her rear view glass
Crimson pushed across her mouth in circles
Winona's deep in love again but says she's in control
Collapsing from the forces in her chest

You'd try and paint her a picture
with fingernails and chalk
Barely struck a dent into her crown

Winona's dating boys again to fill her world with scars
Cut up from the deeper sores within

A throat that sounds familiar, it eased your aching soul
Woke up in his arms you felt like roadkill
You kicked around the carpets
found your crumpled shoes and clothes
Cigarettes afloat amongst the mess of
half-hearted invitations to drink from plastic cups
To warm a house you wish would just burn down
You'd try to paint her a picture
and hope she'd soon wake up
Barely struck a dent into her crown

Winona's dating boys again to fill her world with scars
Cut up from the deeper sores within
Back's against the ropes you didn't mean to grip so hard
Buckles left impressions on her skin
You'd warm a house you wish would just burn down
