So much for a home to call your own.
Parents screaming through the night.
They drank and drank until she said goodbye. She's stronger on her own.
Searching for the hope in this.
To find a place where more than hope exists.

This is not your fault.
She smiles. (Dakota)
Life hasn't been fair to her.
She smiles. (Dakota)
'Cause you can't get the best of her.
She smiles. (Dakota)
And gives herself for someone else
And won't ask a thing in return.

She's been told Those simple words "I love you."
She took him back so many times.
He lied and lied until she said goodbye.
She's stronger on her own.
The truth is that she doesn't see.
She needs much more than simple words can be.

This is not your fault.
She (Dakota) smiles.
Life hasn't been fair to her.
She (Dakota) smiles.
'Cause you can't get the best of her.
She (Dakota) smiles.
And gives herself for someone else
And won't ask a thing in return. (Oh, Dakota)

You might see her crying.
But you won't catch her lying down. (x3)
She won't make a sound.

The little girl
She's holding in her arms.
Doctors don't know why she died.
Her heart just stopped,
she didn't say goodbye.

She smiles.
Life hasn't been fair to her.
She smiles.
'Cause you can't get the best of her.
She smiles.
And gives herself for someone else
And won't ask a thing in return.

Dakota,
Life hasn't been fair to you, (x3)
Dakota.
