Folk Song For Sara

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album Room Temperature (1993).

He called his best friend long distance and told him the news
Of his girlfriend's attempted suicide by overdose
He hadn't taken her to the emergency room but her room mates did
And her stomach was pumped bone dry through a tube
It only cost her one thousand dollars in bills
And an obligatory psychological review

And she stopped crying in her sleep
And she stopped walking in her sleep
And she stopped sleeping in her sleep too

And she said I'm gonna write your name on the walls
I'm gonna carve your name in the stalls
I'm gonna write your name on the walls
I'm gonna carve your name in the stalls

Stay away from this man
Stay away from this man
Stay away from this man
He'll make you swallow asprin

So she fell in love with a loser who robbed used and bruised her
And those were just the salad days
After that a habitual clean up with pepto-bismol and prozac
She even got a job as a washing machine
And he still calls his friend long distance
And speaks of his various girlfriends
But there's never really much different to tell

Eventually they stop crying in their sleep
They stopped walking in her sleep
And they stopped sleeping in her sleep as well

And they write his name on the walls
And they carve his name in the stalls
And they write his name on the walls
And they carve his name in the stalls
Stay away from this man
Stay away from this man
Stay away from this man

And then they pick him up in bars and in public parks
And then they pick him up in bars, in grocery stores and coffee shops
And then he tears through their legs to reach their heart
Through their legs to get their heart
Through their legs to steal their heart again
And it's a headache
And so they take
A little asprin
