Trying to read her palm
With a clenched fist
Calling out for whatever's in store
Asking: "God, did the Devil put you up to this?
Whatever it is, I can't take it any more,"

She says "I'm gonna make
Something of myself tonight
God and the Devil, I'll show you up
I can fight back and I just might
Your tempting business isn't
All that tough,"

She's thrown all caution to the wind
Hoping to catch it in her sails
When her ship comes in
But this ship won't float
No, it just don't

Parading around town
With her open wounds
Saying: "hush now, don't tell a soul,"
Any charity will come too soon
"I can get through this on my own,"
And she's recruiting sympathy like it's an army
And as the front lines fall, she brings new lines up
She says: "keep on your tip-toes, boys
My tissue's scarring,"
Collecting pity like change in a cup

And she's thrown all caution to the wind
Hoping to catch it in her sails
When her ship comes in
But this ship won't float
No, it just don't

She won't make it worth her while
She won't let it get her down
Just try hard to keep that smile
But it's just an upside-down frown

I said make it worth your while
I said let it get you down
Why try so hard to keep that smile
When it's just an upside-down frown?

Trying to read her palm
With a clenched fist
Calling out for more
Saying, "God and the devil
You won't get away with this
When my ship comes in
I'll win this war

God and the devil
You haven't seen the end of this
When my ship comes in
I'll win this war,"
