TWO TIMERS: AUBREY REX AND OTHER STORIES

DIRTY WHITE
(Sarah James)

 

Oh sister must you do just like your mother did
Promise me you'll keep your little secrets well hid
You're walking kinda shaky like your shoes don't fit you right
The clouds conspire against you and shed a spooky light
They call that dress magnolia, that's sorta
Dirty white

I saw you from my window stumbling through the cars
He was dragging you behind him into some sleazy bar
You think that you can change him that things'll turn out right
But your hand musta been trembling, you didn't hold on tight
You dropped your pretty lilies in the gutter
Dirty white

The Porto women live their life in someoneelse's shoes
They drive down to the river bank in BMW's
And scrub their dirty linen, a holy life of grime
They stretch the sheets out on the sand to dry in the sunlight
And watch their hopes in sweat and soap float downstream
Dirty white
