Skimming Stones

from It's Kind Of You To Ask

She's on her own again
She goes down to the water
She's skimming stones
Against the waves
She's no sense of who she is
She's nobody's daughter
She redraws her past
With each memory she makes

She's nothing to do today
And there'll be nothing tomorrow
There's nothing to say
She's not already said

On her way home from work
She's fighting the traffic
Days blur into the next
Like the cars on the road
She takes out a meal for one
That she won't bother eating
Sits down at the table
Her eyes reading "overload"

There's no-one to see today
And there'll be no-one tomorrow
There's nothing to say
It's already been said

How can the sky be so blue
When she's feeling so grey?
How can the sun be so warm
She's so cold inside?

So the story goes
She loved and she loses
Gave so much away
There's nothing left
They say that old habits die hard
But the young and the lonely die easy
Now there's no-one to mourn
She left no-one bereft

She's nothing to do today
And there'll be nothing tomorrow
There's nothing to say
It's already been said

How can the sky be so blue
When she's feeling so grey?
And how can the sun be so warm
She's so cold inside?
How can the wind be so soft
Now she's turning to stone?
How can she stand in a crowd
And be so alone?

Over and over the story
She goes in her mind
Over and over the story
She goes

She carried the weight of the world on her shoulders
She carried the weight of the world and she knows
She carried the weight of the world on her shoulders
She carried the weight of the world and she knows
