Verse 1
[D]Julie was a lonely [G]girl
Said she was born that [D]way
She always felt that [G]way

She left home at age sixteen
Got a job, what you're supposed to do
That's what you gotta do

She fell in love and settled down
In a council place out
... on the edge of town

[D]She'd feel a[A]lone in a crow[G]_ded room
[D]Cry when she [A]heard a [G]happy tune
[D]Julie was a lonely [G]girl
Said she was born that [D]way
She always felt that [G]way

Verse 2
Well it would be nice to holiday
'Till they took her job away
They just took her life away

Doing nothing isn't fun
... when you've nothing from which to run
Yeah, you've nowhere left to run

She'd visit the social every day
Every time be turned away
Every time be turned away

She'd feel alone in a crowded room
Cry when she heard a happy tune


Verse 3
A hundred stairs to her new room
Over glass and blackened spoons
Children grow old so soon

Past the kids who gather there
Pain masked by narcotic stares
But no-one really cares

Chorus 2
[D]Her dreams were [A]cut up and bled [G] dry
A [D]million [A]voices [G]in her cry

[A]Julie waits, her [D]world is [G]her win[A]dow
And [A]Julie hates, she [D]hates the [G]world be[A]low
And [A]Julie hates just [D]what she [G]doesn't [A]know
But [A]Julie loves, she [D]loves too [G]much to [A]know...
