What happens at home since I've gone away
Needles drop soft and sharp and the leaves gently sway
Low ceiling moves in and circles the bay, rain rakes the trees
The sound that's counted so many days, so many days
Wet shoes drag you off to school
Shoes that never dry
Crows curse and beat their wings
Why can't you be smarter, girl?
Lift up your face
Don't feel sorry for yourself, I'll always wait for you
Your ghost is a light show at night on the Grand Coulee Dam
The river is watching you at the drive-in tonight
Who do they comfort now?
Since I've gone away
