People look her way
But they don’t understand
No one knows the pain she’s felt
The tears she’s cried
And the life that has died.
There was once a time
When the love was alive
The tears never came
And the smile never faded
The girl up above was the one who knew to love
The one who’s heart and smile was free
The one who used to believe in her dreams
Now that girl is gone
Replaced by one who slowly fades away
Destined to walk her own death
Fading to a broken lovers grave.
Walking as if the life was gone
Speaking to a ghost of her past
Screaming to be free
And wanting to believe again.
Will the life longed for
Ever be relived?
Will the love she searches for
Ever be received ?
Or is a broken lover…
all she has come to be?
