Lyrics

She vanished in the night club district
Between two and four, between two and four
She disappeared in showgirl land
Beneath the sunken scores, the drunken scores
She left a trail from Crown to King Street
Last seen like fire and brimstone

Now she’s gone all the way
All the way this time

Stricken parents on the evening news
An emotional plea, an emotional plea
Still no work of the missing girl
She was just twenty-three, just twenty-three
They found her jacket in the river
They never found the body

Now she’s gone all the way
All the way this time

A faded house on an empty beach
Stolen car and a stolen name
Now she’s out of reach
No more of those lame excuses
No more of those small abuses
Last seen like fire and brimstone
Last seen like fire and brimstone
Head ringing like an ocean bell

Now she’s gone all the way
All the way this time
