Lyrics

Lorraine came down from Mississauga town without a dime in her pocket
She gave up her belongings and said “I'm goin' it alone”

She escaped by night on a red eye flight From the Pearson airport
Her fragile mind was racing
And destiny unknown

She said “I'm done with bein' no one, I've gotta find my callin'
Once and for all and find a life to call my own”

She never had no dad her ma was all she had but she led a life of drinkin'
She said “that ain't no life worth livin', there ain't no honor in shame”

She pawned her ma's jewels and dropped out of school she said
“There's nothin' there worth learnin'”
Her angry blood was burnin' and happiness unclaimed

She said “I'm through with feelin' untrue,
I gotta find my own truth”
She changed her clothes in a phone booth and rolled a smoke for the road

Months went by without a smile in here eye she started runnin' with the wrong crowd
With no plan or way out of that maze of shady deals

Those mean streets didn't have no leads man, her grubby hands were shaking
As the honest world was waking she flagged down trucks in high heels

She said “things aren't supposed to be like this, I gotta find a way out
I'll get out and stay out of this cruel dreary town”

She disappeared without a trace, I saw a poster of her face at the drop in centre
It said 'missing since November' any leads would be helpful

Now and again I think about Lorraine
I hope she's In a warm and safe place
The cops said “it's a cold case”, they ain't got nothin' to go on

When your roots are soaked in booze, how can you keep 'em strong
When all you know is wrong and you've got no place to belong?”

Lorraine came down from Mississauga town without a dime in her pocket
She gave up her belongings and said “I'm goin' it alone”
