Just barely 20 with a slight frame
And a hunger for something that I couldn't name
I went runnin', I went runnin'
Runnin' barefoot into the night

I got hair the color of a silkworm's dream
The prettiest little thing that you ever did see
They come runnin', they come runnin'
Anything they can do, they clamour for me

Oh, it never changes
Oh, but we carry the weight with us
Oh, it's a hard world

It all seemed like such a long time ago
They buried my story when they filled in that hole
Nobody runnin', nobody runnin'
Nobody trying to explain

I wanna wake in the woods beside the lake
Just resting my head in some moss covered glen

Oh, it never changes
Oh, but we carry the weight with us
Oh, it's a hard world

Motor oil colored hair and a white t-shirt
Now tan from the rust and the dirt

Nobody calls for me
Nobody hunts for me
They don't seem to know I'm gone
The other girls and me
Resting under this tree
Are green with envy at the attention you draw

Oh, it never changes
Oh, but we carry the weight with us
Oh, it's a hard world for the little things
A hard world, oh
A hard world for all the lost girls

Remember me, remember me
Underneath this lonesome, awful tree
Let the roots and soil drink of me
Whispering leaves, pointing branches will tell them where I'm lying
