Periscopes - Misappropriated Youth lyrics

She Steadies herself, takes a breath

And steps out into the darkness

The cool night air touches her skin

She barely does notice

Afraid yet compelled of what might lie ahead

She's intrigued by the shadows

Will she find shelter tonight?

I guess nobody knows

The darkness is cut with some headlights

A man steps out of his car

A 1980 Mercedes

In his hand he holds a cigar

He makes the girl an offer

It's a price she cannot refuse

One night's work for a lonely man

She has nothing new to lose

And if for a moment, time could freeze

You would see this girl is begging upon her knees

Though she masks it well, from the outside

Within herself she's giving up, as time goes by

They pull up outside of a motel

And book in for just the night

She follows him to a one-bedroom unit

Walks in and turns off the light

As they lie there beneath the covers

And he holds her as if she were his

She tries to pretend that it is something more

Than what she was payed to give

The morning comes quickly

Once again she's all alone

Last nights pay is sitting on the table

But there is no number to phone

She goes to her bag, and takes from it

Something to ease the pain

The needle pricks her sharply

She's feeling warm again

And if for a moment, time could freeze

You would see this girl is begging upon her knees

Though she masks it well, from the outside

Within herself she's giving up, as time goes by
