Sidewalk Annie

Sidewalk Annie

The Wallflowers

She told you about it through a broken bleeding windpipe
It shook your bones and made your life feel skintight

Well, sidewalk annie
Now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now
Since you don't speak to anyone

The howlin' winds could never care what she liked
Rhythm and blues or a stranger in the night
It tore up the trailer with the sounds of a howlin' wolf
The cellar was stone, even the garden was bulletproof

Well, sidewalk annie
Now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now
Since you don't speak to anyone

Little girl in your white ice skates
We've seen your face walkin' around the old school gates
With a hand on your hip and the other one on your head
You realized it wasn't gone, but lost instead

Sidewalk annie
Now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now
Since you don't speak to anyone
Invested a nickel into the banks of a wishing well
And blew out the candles and hoped for somethin' that she
Could, she could sell

Sidewalk annie
Now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now
Since you don't speak to anyone
