Wry & Ginger
...to deny some happiness is wrong

She cracks a smile
A wry and ginger smile
She'd put more miles
Between herself and everything that's wrong
If she could crack a bigger smile than her wry and ginger smile

The gains are losses
When the game has no rules
The more she scores, the chances less
That she can carry all that gold back home
And the pile climbs ever higher - she did not want to be alone

All she ever wanted was to know when it's real
All she ever wanted was to know that it feels like it feels
It's just another corner, and something waits for her
But it's not this
It's not this
It's not this
It's not this
It's not this....

She fakes a stumble
Someone she wanted calls her name
Her reasons crumble
To deny some happiness is wrong
She could just crack a bigger smile than her wry and ginger smile

All she ever wanted was to know when it's real
All she ever wanted was to know that it feels like it feels
It's just another corner, and something waits for her
But it's not this
All she ever wanted was to know when it's real
All she ever wanted was to know that it feels like it feels
And it's not this
It's not this
It's not this
It's not this
It's not this
It's not this....

She's looking straight down
She could be looking up
She stares into her rye and ginger - she did not want to be alone....
