She looked for perfection in an imperfect world
Cause she needed perfection where his hatred was curled
And she tried to remember how heaven had felt
Cause she new that she had been there before these cards were dealt

(Chorus) And he's just a skeleton, no doubt in his eyes
And she is an angel no one denies
So she turned and she left him to turn night into day
But he grabbed hold of anything just to make her stay

She searched for the lesson that would teach her the skills
To fill her hole with herself not Valium pills
But it's hard to find sisters not poisoned with doubt
Its hard to find sisters who still know what faith's all about

Just to make her stay (bis 4)
She came to the table to play a new game
But she is still holding the same cards
But she won't feel your shame
Cause there is nothing outside her to gain or receive
There's nothing to fuel her along till herself she believes in

He, she
So she had to turn and leave him, anything

    General Commentone..of my best friends...maybe the one..who knows..shes more like a a female ..but shes the closest thing to a soulmate i know..well she introduced me into sheila nicholls ..and i remember how she said...ure gonna love this particular song..called i downloaded it..and she said..thats she dedicated this song to me..
    at 1st..i didnt get i do..
    everyday i try to guess..and no matter how time goes by..or years pass still holdin the same cards ..cuz they are some demons within me..i cant handle not happy with myself..neither with my choices..and everytime i seem to be moving just walking not over yet..not matter what i do..or how i might feel at times..theres always a bigger space which lays empty...
    and..maybe i should feel better 'bout myself..cuz be an angel....too much for this unperfect world...and its hard to find people to trust and to believe in..maybe i should just believe in myself..and quit especting anything at all..from anyone..after all..the only reason why we get dissapointed..its just cuz we espect too much from others...or maybe anything at all..
    and we're all playing the same game with the same cards over and over again...with a different name,...
