They left with clothes in disarray
and her on the bed 15 that day
they got her drunk
they never apolagized
she kept her mouth shut the way girls should
tried to decide just where she stood
and i was the only one to see the glowing anger in her eyes

and she took this as a sign

a little light inside that told her it was time to take revenge
and it was almost time

when the first spark flew i'd like to think she smiled and she carried that torch cause the stale smell of

    General Commenti have this song on a compilation called "NO-FI TRASH". sarge doesnt exist anymore, so if you have trouble finding the cd and you really like this song, you can always buy the comp.
    this song is one of my favorites on that cd. she has a beautiful voice and she actually says something without belting it out in screams or annoying rants. bravo.

    General CommentThe lead singer for Sarge, Elizabeth Elmore, is also the lead singer for a band called The Reputation. If you like Sarge, you'll like them. (:
