Colleen

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Living with the Living (2007).

Colleen, never to be crowned queen
Never an evergreen
Floating above the scene
As still as a figurine

Expressionless, so serene
But I know what makes you scream
So don't you run out of steam
I know you, Colleen

It's been all messed up since the very beginning
You act so tough people think that you're winning
And everyone wants something from Colleen

Colleen, perpetually between
What is and what could have been
Floating through your routine
Every day since you were fifteen

And rosy as you make it seem
I know life for you ain't been a dream
To have to deal with the things you've seen
While they work you like you're a machine

Machines break down but you can't break with them
It's too late now so don't break the rhythm
And everyone wants something from Colleen

Colleen, if ever you walk into a dead end street
Come clean
Don't say that it's all all in your mind
Because I know what you mean, Colleen

It's been all messed up since the very beginning
It's too late now 'cause we're already in it
And everyone wants something from Colleen
And no one gets 'cause she's no one's Colleen
