Thereâ€™s a letter she keeps inside, a list of everyone she knows Behind her closed eyes that turn her in when itâ€™s time to go Sheâ€™s heading north into the haze, raise the wire and they raise the rent Sheâ€™s walking the sun back home and in the night the moon is gone Is it better? Is it better and better? Is it better than staying home with nowhere to go?
Iâ€™ve seen your face out on the plains drifting all alone Draw my finger in the dirt and down another blue road Sheâ€™s in Kansas and Alabamâ€™, Idaho and the Carolines Know Iâ€™ve seen her before canâ€™t you recognize those hands Is it better? Is it better and better? Is it better than staying back home? Is it better? Is it better and better? Is it better with nowhere else to go?
