louisa has eyes just like stones
inside a well
that you once fell down
before you knew
that girls who throw stones
rarely back down

louisa sings like a sailor
grunts with her guitar
never in tune
louisa dances at punk shows
likes to knit sweaters
follows the moon

she says,
there's gonna be trouble at home
there's gonna be trouble at home
there's gonna be trouble at home
if you don't get back soon

louisa she is a painter
like something post modern
in a magazine
she spends nights in the gallery
when no ones looking
watching TV

oh louisa do you remember last winter
when i broke apart
your summer dress
louisa how did i lose you
& can you remember
how hard you possessed me

louisa i love you
but i will not let him down
no matter how hard i try
louisa i'm sorry
but come back inside
turn out the light
this floor is cold
& your bed is warm
so what is the harm
throw a log on the stove
spend the night

louisa she is a ghost town
i cannot escape
no matter my speed
louisa let's meet in virginia
& exorcise demons
we cannot see

well there is a man in this room
who wants to kiss me
pretend i am his
he saddles up on the couch
and passes a bowl
and the turntable spins

oh, louisa she holds up a mirror
she closes her black eyes
says you are a soldier
you are a warrior
you are a gypsy
& you always will be
better than this

& hey, look up,
you can see the stars
look you can see the stars
just look up
look you can see the stars
all the way out here
