Lyrics

"In another time" she thought "I could've been a lady"
But out here in the desert she's just lonely and afraid
The curtains blow in the wind through the open window
She lays on her back with her eyes closed

There's a box for you and you know it
There's a place for you and they'll find it
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, break your legs, break your back to make you fit
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, your legs, your back

In the distance she hears a car door slam and
Heavy boots on rocks and sand and
The approach is never what you expect
This last wave to wash the driftwood to the steps

"Come home, come home" she'd always say
She was so small in his minds eye
He'd always put it off just one more day
And every street light that goes out as he passed by
Just a reminder that he never said goodbye
And every street light that goes out as he passed by
Just a reminder that he never said...

There's a box for you and you know it
There's a place for you and they'll find it
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, break your legs, break your back to make you fit
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, your legs, your back

The curtains blow in the wind through the open window
She wished to god that he'd never have to go
But he'll fit for long in the box that's been prepared
It's like a coffin, with a lid, even when it's shared
And every street light that goes out as he passed by
Just a reminder that he never said goodbye
And every street light that goes out as he passed by
Just a reminder that he never said...

There's a box for you and you know it
There's a place for you and they'll find it
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, break your legs, your back to make you fit
If you won't go when they first put you in
Break your arms, your legs, your back
Your arms, your legs, and your back
Your arms, your legs, and your back
