She said some things I tell you
I tell nobody else
And somethings I need to keep to myself
Then they found her face down on the lawn
Just another junkie gone

He said you heard of a day trader?
Well I trade in the night
And my death will come like a moth around that street light
Then he stumbled out into the dawn
Just another junkie gone

She said that girl in the picture
Can you believe that was me?
I wanted to be a dancer ever since I was three
No one knows what it’s like to hold on
I’m just another junkie gone

He keeps a constellation
Of marks up his sleeve
And for his next trick friends he’ll try to remember to breathe
As he closes his eyes and stretches out long
He’s just another junkie gone

She said I always feel different
Than everyone else
So like an ugly duckling I keep to myself
Now she finally has the wings of a swan
She’s just another junkie gone

I have one thing
I managed not to pawn
It’s my father’s guitar going to play it all night long
Trying to write you one more song
I’m just another junkie gone
Watch me slip away
I’m just another junkie gone
