Lyrics M.Couture
inspired by this episode, back in Fernie B-C.
Some people leave a permanent print on your life.
This song goes out to this young runaway girl, and to the local police officers who came looking for her the day she left...

lyrics

Where do you go when there's no one you know there?

The fog, the night, the street again.
A 20$ bill and a purse in her hand.
She had left Hastings on her way to something
But these Broad Streets have offered nothing.
The betterness she had in mind
Something that she never finds.
A peace and a state that seems out of mind.
Out of the fog and out of the night
Finally a face she could recognize.

The message is not the same
Conditions have changed
I feel better now that
You're here by my side.
Now take my hand
And make it right.
Tell me that everything's going to be alright
We'll make it right, alright?

Where do you go when there's no one you know there?

Some days, perspective's not enough.
She stayed on my couch for quite some time now.
She opened up enough to let herself let go.
«Life on the street is never really fun.
It's like being far from home and everybody's gone.
Naked and stranded by the barrel of a gun.
You don't even get to appreciate the sun.»
She told me all along, on the couch, the light on.

The message is not the same
Conditions have changed
I feel better now that
You're here by my side.
Now take my hand and make it right.
Tell me that we'll stand the test of time.
