"She Gave It Away" as written by and Christopher Anton Rea....
She gave away all her love
No reason to keep it
She'd saved it for only one
But he didn't need it
And downtown the midnight circus
Hypnotised like a spinning top
Offering dreams, like the gloss magazines
She had so much to give so she gave it away

And all of the loves you've known
There must have been someone
Who gave you that starry night
And whose gonna point the finger
Only those who never known
She lost and she cried, the tears run dry
She had so much to give so she gave it away

Mary was like you and I
She remembers how she lay with him
But to the world she's just a drunken cheap trick
Red light side kick, an angel downtown

The priest calls her Wednesdays
And shows her a wooden cross
He tells of the love he's found
She thinks of the one she lost
And downtown the midnight circus
Hypnotised like a spinning top
So easy to choose when there's nothing to lose
She had so much to give so she gave it away
