Fast Lane

Life got so real so fast
And I've forgotten a lot of my past
But was reminded tonight
Of the innocence and light 
I once had

Over the years too many fears
Met with too many tears
So I'm jaded, faded, and torn
With the fury of woman scorned

Everyday it's the same game
Russian roulette I play
One bullet in the chamber and spin
This ain't a way to live
It's dire straights

I hope I have the strength to open the gates
To freedom
Free to be a happy girl
Satisfied with her world
And who she see's in the mirror

Today it became a little clearer
Still don't know where I am
But I think I know where I'm going

Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
To this plan
