Refrain :
Waiting at the red light
I bite my lips and hold on tight
My scream's so loud
But can you hear tears in a crowd
Oh please Mary
Don't ask me up you're killing me
The night's so bright
And your smile's still fine (divine)

She used to be such a quiet, such a lovely girl
A crook for father, he rubbed her soul and broke her down
One of those crazy motherfuckers who loves to tear you up
He never got caught cause sometimes he had to stop
Once in a while, old Mary really thought it was over
Until that day she left on the arm of her pretend lover

(repeat Refrain)

She cries everyday while blasting her old DK record,
But her mind still converges on being a Broadway star.
She gets back to work, ashamed,
No self-esteem left out.
The bill must get paid
And the rats have been waiting for so long.
Addicted since twelve, ingenuous,
She has been mystified all the way.
By a pink limousine,
Everlasting love, an American dream.
