it was three years ago
when she began to stand on her own
she turned her back on everything
now shes alone
i try to talk to her but she is not the same
its been so long since she could recall her name

and i cried
when i heard
what had happened to her
in her eyes
i see the pain
i see the loss
i see the shame but i cant help her now

yesterday she ran away
packed her bags and caught a train
said it all was going down the drain
the words i spoke were said in haste
before i could apreciate
now our lives will never be the same
one last chance to slide away
into the darkness of her shame
she looks and sees theres no one left to blame
i wish i had another day
to look into your pretty face
and tell you that your life can still be saved

    General CommentHe's always admired this girl. She's beautiful and smart and kind and the kind of girl you would want to marry. But she starts to... fall away. She starts to make all sorts of wrong choices. She gets pregnant. He feels the pain she feels. She's been in the right before, so she knows how terrible it is to be in the wrong. Before she flees her old life in shame, they exchange words--words they probably both regret. But she's gone. And that's it. He just wishes he could tell her that her life can still be saved.
