In the Corner

This song was created for Game of Bands round 182 : "Lyrics First"


In The Corner

Did she know why she had done it?
Didn't she feel how far she'd fall?
She had her breath there−in the corner
−a little bread, a little salt

She held her gun, she held her silence
And all the noise came like a call
She broke her fast there−in the corner
−she broke her soul; she broke us all

She pushed her suitcase full of clothes, and
Two pair of shoes, some scarves, a belt
A pair of smiles there−in the corner
−unused, unseen, unknown, unfelt

A string, a rope, a loop, a coil
A simple token of her strife
Immortalised there−in the corner
Where she had sewn her stranded life
