“Katie”

‚Äč

Well the sidewalks are lonely when they’re under her feet

As she’s sliding away back to her living room suite, oh Katie

She’s a walk in the park, a suburban threat

And every afternoon is a Sunday dress, oh Katie

 

She gets invited to the party, but she’ll always decline

Cause she’s fine by herself with a bottle of wine, oh Katie

You never see her around she never pick up the phone

She’s the type of girl who always like being alone, oh Katie

 

With a switchblade grin and a throwback home

Her world is a personal variety show

Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

 

She’s a beautiful novel, a paranoid sin

A whiskey a water, a tonic and gin, oh Katie

She’s a minor fifth on a monotone day

And if you get too close she try to push you away, oh Katie

 

With a switchblade grin and a throwback home

Her world is a personal variety show

Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

 

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

(Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean)

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

 

She lights up a smoke, she pulls up a chair

She’s taking a drag, she’s twirling her hair, oh Katie

It’s the moral of the story that we just felt

She’s hot as sin but it’s worth the melt, oh Katie

 

With a switchblade grin and a throwback home

Her world is a personal variety show

Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me

 

(Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean)

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

(The sidewalks are lonely when they’re under her feet)

(And she’s sliding away back to her living room suite) 

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.

(She’s a beautiful novel, a paranoid sin)

(A whiskey a water, a tonic and gin)

(Well her mind is brittle and her soul is clean)

And it breaks my heart that she’ll never be with me.
