When She's Alone (Pointed Sticks)

Her Mom and Dad didn't understand her She didn't want to do what they planned for her to do She came to write, to be like the other kids Who do what they did until late at night See the girl always laughing When she's alone she cries You'll see her smile and you'll feel the pressure of running Running all the time She didn't like the boredom of the classroom All the things they taught her made no sense to her Why stay inside when so much called her Made her dream of being far away See the girl always laughing When she's alone she cries You'll see her smile and you'll feel the pressure of running Running all the time, all the time You and beauty can't just stop the sin From being a tragedy And when you look a little closer you'll see what I mean You'll see what I mean Her Mom and Dad didn't even know her Why do they expect to see her one more time She made a point and everyone has felt it Why did she have to, why did she do it at all See the girl always laughing When she's alone she cries You'll see her smile and you'll feel the pressure of You'll see her smile and you'll feel the pressure of Running all the time, running all the time Running all the time, running all the time
