    Lyrics

    This girl is a stencil of a brushstroke in the rain
    She's a ghost of the city, she's a body through the windscreen
    This girl is the snowfall where the spring should have been
    She's the stains on the pages of a top shelf magazine
    This girl is a black eye, she's a bruise on your knee
    She's the ashes of the people that you really meant to be
    This girl's the resurrection, she's the comeback
    She's the absinthe in whiskey she is poetry and Prozac

    This girl is taking bets, this girl's a silhouette, can't you see?

    This girl is the flutter of fake lashes in the mirror
    She's a ragged edged fedora or a Spanish souvenir
    This girl is the clean cut, she's the frozen ground
    She's a knife drawn down the side street when there's no-one else around

    This girl's a forged ticket to a Lloyd Webber show
    She's the far end of the graveyard up where the nettles grow
    This girl is the rainbow in the dewy eyed stares
    She's the name tag on the toe of your long dead love affairs

    This girl is taking bets, this girl's a silhouette, can't you see?
    This girl is taking bets, this girl's a silhouette, can't you see?

    This girl is the wild smile, the icy stare
    She's the crackle of the static, she's the curses, she's the prayers
    This girl is the junkie in the children's matinee
    She's the 4 minute warning, she is hell to pay

    This girl is the plunge pool she is cocaine and Kodak
    Now she's out setting sail on the ocean of the soundtrack
    This girl is the shaking hand, the rattling cup
    With a button and a note saying things are looking up
