    Lyrics

    Trying to read her palm
    With a clenched fist
    Calling out for whatever's in store
    Asking 'God, did the Devil
    Put you up to this
    Whatever it is I can't take it any more'
    She says 'I'm gonna make
    Something of myself tonight
    God and the Devil I'll show you up
    I can fight back and I just might
    Your tempting business isn't
    All that tough'

    She's thrown all caution to the wind
    Hoping to catch it in her sails when
    Her ship comes in
    But this ship won't float
    No it just don't

    Parading around town
    With her open wounds
    Saying hush now don't tell a soul
    Any charity will come too soon
    'I can get through this on my own'
    And she's recruiting sympathy
    Like it's an army
    And as the front lines fall
    She brings new lines up
    She says keep on your tiptoes boys
    My tissues scarring
    Collecting pity like change in a cup

    And she's thrown all caution to the wind
    Hoping to catch it in her sails when
    Her ship comes in
    But this ship won't float
    No, it just don't

    She won't make it worth her while
    She won't let get her down
    Just try hard to keep that smile
    But it's just an upside down frown

    I said make it worth your while
    I said let it get you down
    Why try so hard to keep that smile
    When it's just an up side down frown

    Trying to read her palm
    With a clenched fist
    Calling out for more
    Saying, 'God and the devil
    You won't get away with this
    When my ship comes in
    I'll win this war
    God and the devil you haven't
    Seen the end of this
    When my ship comes in
    I'll win this war'
