blind winter lyrics – missy higgins

it was a blind winter when she headed off
written on her head was “failure to conform”
she had her left hand apon a stick
but she’d had enough
so she threw away her one way home

she said
“i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down
this way that we should go.”
she said
“i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down
this way that we should go…”

it was a black winter night as she stumbled on
aand with every step grew closer to the ground
she knew her one chance of living on
was to strip away
all the colours that were casting her astray

she said
“i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down
this way that we should go.”
she said “i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down,
this way that we should go…”

so with a fever of 43 she surrendered there
ready for the world to take her as their own
but as she lay there the people stared
as they carried on
feeling terrified of her stripped to the bone

she said
“i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down
this way that we should go.”
she said
“i’m just another girl who wants to know
just where you think it’s written down
this way that we should go…”
