No Man's Land

She couldn't take it in the working man‘s world
She couldn't make it in society, baby
She didn't wanna be a stay at home girl
She didn't wanna be, wanna be the perfect lady

She keeps a wall around her
To keep her memories at bay
She says:

This is no man‘s land
Where no mans hand can ever change her plans,
No man

Back in the city
All those voices in the walls
She tried to block ’em out
But they'd come back when she'd go under

Her secret number taking every call
There was no corner of her mind
Where they couldn't find her

She keeps a wall around her
To keep her memories at bay
People come to see her
But she just sends them away
She says:

This is no man‘s land...
