"Carmen" as written by Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson....
Carmen tells me what she's done
Says she's having fun
Wants to be a mom

Copper hair and golden smile
Sparkles all the while
But life can be a trial

Carmen's in a world of pain
Don't cry now for yesterday
Babys' gone but she's okay

Carmen tells me where she's been
Nightmares that she's seen
Makes me want to scream

Hear the things that she's been through
Grey and black and blue
Life can be so cruel

Sit down here and take a drink
Tell me about everything
And he shrugs and then he winks again

Chocolate box and photograph
Life is hard and life is tough
Carmen smiles and then she laughs again

It's time we started heading home now
I've made mistakes along the way
It makes no sense but I'm okay now
Its happened again
I guess I'll live another day

Sit down here and take a drink
Tell me about everything
And he shrugs and then he winks again

Chocolate box and photograph
Life is hard and life is tough
Carmen smiles and then she laughs again

    Song MeaningEveryone has a friend who wants to vent to them, don't they? That's what I think this is about. Carmen finds venting to Miki therapeutic, Miki finds it somewhat irritating but humors her old friend.
