    Lyrics

    going once, going twice
    sold to the girl
    who ignored all the advice
    of all the people who knew better
    she just stood there
    on the front porch
    waiting for her will
    to come and get her

    she was packed
    she had a suitcase
    full of noble intentions
    she had a map packed
    and a straight face
    hell bent on reinvention
    and she was ready
    for the lonely
    she was in it for
    it only

    going once, going twice
    down the road less taken
    with her diary and her WD40
    and her swiss army knife
    and her beer
    and there was always
    someone there to say
    why don't you just stay
    and hang your hat here

    but she was packed
    she had a suitcase
    full of bumbles and near misses
    and she was swinging
    through a jungle
    of last calls and first kisses
    and she was learning
    about please
    and huge humilities

    then one day she looked around here
    and everything up till then was showing
    and she wondered how did i get here
    without even knowing where i was going?
    now there's no getting out of this
    and there is no going back
    and it all seems so odd sometimes
    and the odds all seem stacked

    going once, going twice
    sold to the girl
    who ignored all the advice
    of all the people who knew better
    she just stood there
    on the front porch
    waiting for her will
    to come and get her

    she was packed
    she had a suitcase
    she had a map packed
    and a straight face
    she was ready
    for the lonely
    she was in it for
    it only
