There was a girl in my hometown
They say she wore the sharpest crown
Beautiful, its diamond tile
Never took her picture cause she never learned to smile

It's not surprising
There's nothing exciting

Late at night, you'll hear the sound
They say she wore the sharpest crown
She felt a darkness deep inside
She went and asked her mama why
She got no answer just because
Mama wasn't sleeping or pretending that she was

It's not surprising
There's nothing exciting

I hope that she'll turn around
They say she wore the sharpest crown
Woah, I loved her, don't ask how
Must've had some reasons that I can't remember now

Some folks say I let her down
But the same folks say she wore the sharpest
Dangerous and tore the darkness
Held her like a ten-ton harness
As I ran off for the farthest town
They say she wore the sharpest crown

    General CommentThis song, in my opinion, is about a girl with demons, addiction, mental health, etc. "The Sharpest Crown" refers to her bright future and talents, and how her demons stole them from her. I also believe that the woman mightve been abused, and that her mother knew, but turned a blind eye- "She felt a darkness deep inside, she went and asked her Mama why. Got no answer, just because, her Mama wasnt sleeping or pretending that she was..."
