Red Shoes  Oct. 13, 2002

No one would ever know

Your past really doesn’t show.

Go ahead, you’ve paid your dues

Go on out in your red shoes.

No one could ever tell

You made it through the gates of hell.

So stand up straight; you have nothing to lose.

It’s you who’s beautiful, not just your shoes.
