lyrics

She's living in a self-imposed hell
Hazards in the kitchen stop those hands from itchin'
She's so desperate to push her way outside

Back around the house it crawls
A fear - the child of monsters coming back to haunt her
The memories of days will turn her hands to clay

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes and dances by herself

You and I would never understand the things she has forgotten
They come back to her often
They come crawling out from behind the mask she wears
For lately love and hate leave scars across her eyes
The memories of days she can't keep locked away

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes
Don't tell her what she needs

'Cos she's walking - don't push her away
Talking - about her life
She ain't smiling - don't believe her
Crying - don't turn your shoulder away

She's practising her pride
It's so ugly magnified

As she walks and talks and dances by herself
She lives and breathes and dances by herself
