lyrics

1.
Miss Callender, he softly breathes and takes her by the hand
Takes off her skirt and blouse
She breathes, lies back, breathes out

And when it’s done her stocking feet are feeling for her shoes
Her hair falls all around
Undone, she leaves, breaks down

Back at school they gather round and pin her to the wall
Now her candle’s burning down
She counts the days, the weeks, even if he turned around
She's paper thin and he would look right through her
Apart from there where focal darkness falls
There’s a shadow on the heart
Of the Callender girl

2.
Miss Callender, I see you’re here, please come with me this way
Put on this paper gown
Breathe in, relax, breathe out

And when it’s done her stocking feet are feeling for her shoes
Her hair falls all around
Undone, she leaves, breaks down

The men in group are gathered round round table and high chair
With her pages turning now
They pin her up, they gaze at her image on the wall
She’s so thin the light it shines right through her
Apart from there where focal darkness falls
There’s a shadow on the heart
Of the Callender girl, Callender girl
Callender girl

3.
The suited men, they sit and plan round table and high chair
From school to club to power
They strike their lines through her days, through her months
And through her years, and laughter lights around the room
Apart from there where focal darkness falls
There’s a shadow on their hearts
The Callender girl, Callender girl
Callender girl, Callender girl
