She was so clever for her age as a kid
She took pride in everything she ever said and did
She was born as an angel, ticked every box in the list
How could someone so beautiful end up like this?
She was brought up in an everyday council estate
Had friends and family who were never too far away

Even as a kid, she'd sometimes lose her temper
And if attention's being given, guaranteed she's in the centre
School was a struggle, result of her behaviour
Excluded for the fights, the same a few days later
'Cause when she got angry, she'd flip and see red
"You're too pretty for the violence" her mum always said

She had high aspirations, she was chasing a dream
Until her first conviction at the age of fourteen
She nearly killed a girl just for looking the wrong way
Smashed her head so hard against the ground, she was unconscious for days
Passers by stopped to witness the torture
While she stamped on the head of a policeman's daughter
No remorse for the course of a Magistrate's court
It was everybody else's fault of course

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

After dark, things began to slip out of grip
And the grades were falling but she didn't give a shit
She was top dog at school and all the girls were scared
And when she walked through the corridors, all the boys stared
She craved to be wanted, she didn't care how
She wanted everything including this guy Ben she liked now
He was nineteen, liked fighting and smoking the green
He was a dealer, had a beamer, she thought he was a dream

She got his number, "are you okay? Text back Chelsea Price"
It was Monday, they agreed to meet up on Friday night
She played it cool, the whole week she wondered what to wear
She planned her jewellery, her make-up, her shoes and her hair
The days went so slow and school was so boring
But before she knew it, it was already Friday morning

She was nervous and scared but in a good way,
She had no idea that it was no ordinary day
She walked down the stairs, it was 7 o'clock
He was coming at eight, she had to iron her top
7:45 came and she looked gorgeous,
Rapunzel let out too early from the fortress

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

She gets in the car, says "hi" and they drive off
They head to a car park where he can skin up
She gets into conversation, nods and smiles
And she feels so happy and not even shy
A girl pulls up, sees Ben and screams
He puts the car in gear and gets ready to leave
This girl gets out of the car and stands in front
She screams "that's my fucking boyfriend, get out you little ..."

Chelsea turns to Ben who just shrugs, you don't believe her
She's never been scared and she's not today either
She puts her hand on the door and gets out to fight
She's angry now this bitch has just ruined her night

The two girls clash, hair pulling, fists flying
Chelsea sees blood gushing, the other steps back crying
Chelsea grins 'cause she thinks she's won
The she looks at Ben's face who's completely stunned
Then there's a pain in the middle of her stomach
The blood's on her T-shirt, the other girl starts running
Chelsea's heart thuds, panic sets in more
She looks down at the pool of blood and there's a knife on the floor

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight

She hear's tyre's screeching, losing so much blood
Ben's cars gone, it's got a boot full of drugs
She lies there, eyes wide open facing the sky
Thoughts float out of her mind as she questions why
Her last movement and the tears she's crying
She thinks about her family as she lies there dying
She's alone on her own because of the violence
Can't hear people or friends or help or sirens

She whispers "I'm sorry"
There's no one on the way
As she returns to an angel
And her soul slips away

What you doing with your night?
You're too young to ruin your life
What you doing with your life?
You're too young to die tonight
