  • Lyrics: "Those soles are comfort"? She said "that's credit card"? New shoes walking home? She don't own a car car car She turns the lights off? Electric bill is high? She's glad Harry's out? 'Cause she hates to cry cry cry Under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her fly? And, under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her fly? "Give me some reasons,? Not just enough is enough"? She pricks her skin? From thinking she could take too much “Just a damn fairy tale”? She laughs outside? She can’t keep it up Sleeping girl has to close her eyes Under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her fly? And, under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her hide The city sings like sirens, it’s melting in the wind Fading when it is exposed to sun Turning on the shower She is melting in the water? She is fading in the moonlight, turning into mud Under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her fly? And, under these dirty skies? Her dirty wings they let her hide Let her fly
