It was a blind winter when she headed off,
Written on her head was "failure to conform"
She had her left hand apon a stick but she'd had enough
So she threw away her one way home.

She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go."
She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go..."

It was a black winter night as she stumbled on
And with every step grew closer to the ground.
She knew her one chance of living on was to strip away
All the colours that were casting her astray.

She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go."
She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go..."

So with a fever of 43 she surrendered there,
Ready for the world to take her as their own.
But as she lay there the people stared as they carried on,
Feeling terrified of her stripped to the bone...

She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go."
She said "I'm just another girl who wants to know
Just where you think it's written down,
This way that we should go..."

    This is such a strong, powerful and meaningful song. To me, it talks about people being shunned in society and people even fearing them because they are different. Someone could have helped the woman, but they didn't. She "failed to conform". But what is conformity? Every single person in the whole world is different. So how should we be? What is normal? Who makes these rules? I think Missy knows this...and so does the woman. But there's nothing she could do about it.
