lyrics

Held against the wall
Feeling three feet tall
She closes her eyes and dreams of the man she wed
He goes to clench his fists
All the years that she's missed
A mother watching her children as they fed

Where did the time go
Did it die along with her smile
Did it wash away all the hopes that she had

Oh, she's next door
Begging and pleading and covered in sores
I can't recall when she smiled last
Oh, she'll take no more
Of him passing out on the floor
She needs a little bit of rest

Waiting for the train
Words can not explain
Thirty-four years of her life down the drain
Now she won't miss it
The fire has been lit
The passion for life and love has come back again

Where did she go?
I heard she walked out of the door
Oh, she's happy again
And she's free

Oh, she's next door
Begging and pleading and covered in sores
I can't recall when she smiled last
Oh, she'll take no more
Of him passing out on the floor
She needs a little bit of rest

Oh, she ain't next door
No more begging and pleading there's no more sores
Making him smile was a thing of the past
Oh, she'll take no more
No more picking him up off the floor
She found her, she found her happiness
