Maggie Said - Natalie Merchant

Maggie said
Dig one more shallow grave before I'm dead
Maggie said
I'm just lookin' for a place that I can lay my weary head
There's no perfect end
Just time to leave

Maggie said
They wreck the table at the game of love
Maggie said
It's just stupid luck if you rise above
Everybody's second in death
Win or lose, my friend
It's so hard to leave

Holdin' back
What did I get for all of that?
What did it count for?
Tell me that
Nothin'
Nothin'
Oh, nothin', that's a fact

Maggie said
It's so hard to find the Golden Fleece to spin my golden thread
Maggie said
You're preachin' to the choir, girl, now
You're not stickin' out your neck
There's no risk in that
Darlin', please

Holdin' back
What did I get for all of that?
What did it count for?
Tell me that
Tell me that
Nothin'
Nothin'
Nothin', that's a fact

Maggie said
Don't let them take that halo from your head
Maggie said
I can see you're turning hard now, girl
Don't lose your tenderness
What's the use in that?
Darlin', please

Holdin' back
What did I get for all of that?
What did it count for?
Tell me that
Count for?
Tell me that
Nothin'
Nothin'
Nothin'
Oh, nothin', that's a fact
