lyrics

Portrait of a lady convinced she's invisible
She was told a tale retold it 'til she grew old
She practice whispering and standing in place
She ties her shoes together tends to fall flat on her face

Backyard arguments, lonely nights, a distant lover
These are just a few things she come to discover
These days are hazy, the afternoon grey
Smokey evening yellow and subsistence blasé

Now she can fly, soar drunk and insane
No she don't mind, no it keeps down the pain

We meet in private ever quietly commiserate
Eyes implore for more her red dress fall to the floor
We talk awkwardly once in a while
I can swear one time I even seen her smile

Now there she goes
Her books are filled with empty pages, silver screens
And several stages
Don't worry it's all in her brain

Portrait of a lady convinced she's invisible
Told a fairy tale retold it till she grew old
She argues with the clock ignores him for days
He'll come creeping from behind, show you the error in your ways
