City She

Another coat of lipstick gone,

For every mistake that she’s made;

Another girl,

Another boy,

Another hopeful heart to raid;

They all said she had a future-

But it was her bed that they made;

It’s so easy to sell dreams to the young,

Then sit back and watch them fade.

Ya she’s a train wreck on the subway,

She’s lost and lonely in the crowd,

Another naïve example,

Of something lost for something found;

Another wide-eyed girl,

The world caught looking at the ground;

In the town she thought would save her,

She can’t be heard over city sound.
