The Wallflowers - Sidewalk Annie lyrics

She told you about it through a broken bleeding windpipe
Shook your bones and made your life feel skin-tight

Sidewalk Annie now your coattails come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

Howlin' winds could never care what she liked
Rhythm and blues or a stranger in the night
It tore up the trailer with the sounds of a howlin' wolf
The cellar was stone even the garden was bulletproof

Sidewalk Annie now your coattails come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

Little girl in your white ice skates
We've seen your face walkin' around the old school gates
A hand on your hip and the other one on your head
You realized it wasn't gone but lost instead

Sidewalk Annie now your coattails come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

Invested a nickel into the banks of a wishing well
Blew out the candles and I hoped for somethin' that she could, she could sell

Sidewalk Annie now your coattails come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone
