Born in Kansas
On an ordinary plain
Ran to New York
But ran away from fame
Only seventeen
When all your dreams came true
But all you wanted
Was someone to undress you
And all the stars you kissed
Could never ease the pain
Still the grace remains
And though the face has changed
You're still the same
And it's a long long way
From where you want to be
And it's a long long road
But you're too blind to see
Frame of silence
Of an innocence divine
Is a dangerous creation
When you fail the test of time
And all the photographs
Of ghosts of long ago
Still they hurt you so
Won't let you go
And you still don't know
And it's a long long way
From where you want to be
And it's a long long road
But you're too blind to see
When you look around yourself now
Do you recognise the girl?
The one who broke a thousand hearts
Terrified the world
And all the stars you kissed
Could never ease the pain
And if the face has changed
The grace remains
And you're still the same
And it's a long long way
From where you want to be
And it's a long long road
But you're too blind to see
And it's a long long way
From where you want to be
And it's a long long road
But you're too blind to see

    General CommentI love this song as much today as when it came out.

    It's about silent movie star Louise Brooks.
    And her biggest movie was Pandora's Box.
