​Missy

This song is by Phantom Limb and appears on the album The Pines (2012).

You could see it, she was lonely
And it hurt enough to kill
That heart has been broken
Too many times for will

Careless with her kindness
But a mean old wife
So many tears were shed over
The many men of her life

Did you see old Missy
Living a life in vain
Too hard to be loving
Too easy to hide away

Wanted to talk to Missy
Just to try to lift her up
But desperation and anger
Like the wings of a dove

Seemed to carry her in the moment
Farther away
From those who tried love her
To the ones who'd make her pay

Did you see old Missy
Living a life in vain
Too hard to be loving
Too easy to hide away

You could see it behind the eyes
But she tried her best to hide
That heart's been broken
Too many times to try

Careless with kindness
She was superficial girl
Always rolling with the in-crowd
As the bad times unfurl

Did you see old Missy
Living a life in vain
Too hard to be loving
Too easy to hide away

Every cupboard full of liquor
But she struggled with the rent
There was no one to blame
Drink had the money spent

She got a daughter, turned thirty
She never could reconcile
They found her in that coachhouse
She's been gone for a while

Did you see old Missy
Living a life in vain
Too hard to be loving
Too easy to hide away

Just walking by the coachhouse
Couldn't watch her waste away
Too hard to love her
Just too easy to walk away
