16 and make up
The light in your eyes grows dim every day...
*** you got to stop and listen to what they have to say
their opinion mattered....
your hopes were shattered
Your dreams have scattered...
To a godforsaken place
And its the only way to save face...
And your life is burning up at an alarming rate.
You sit and blame it all to fate..
Can you see the fire before the ashes?
You can't even see past your perfect eyelashes....
with make up on.... your dreams won't drown
The next line....will make it fine
One more puff...will be enough
To light you way
At least for one more day...
Made with total disrespect
those marks upon your neck,
Paint a gloomy image of your past.
And with the lies you were told
they helped to mold,
The women whose tears fall fast
You need him..to forgive your sins.
Your life is lost
'*** of the higher cost
so you keep on the deceiving
The people who look out for you...
The people who strive to...
Make sure the light in your eyes
Stays bright not dim...
And all *** of him?
A sorry excuse of a ****?
**** that and him!
And now your lips touch bottle
After this shot it's on, Full throttle!
Its really fine... he's twenty-nine
Its ok that at sixteen... you're just a fiend
as if, you're far from home... and you're all grown....
Shouldn't be that way....
You shouldn't have to dread another day...
And after all you've been through
Still these words won't reach you...
*** with your make up on
And the bottle gone
those marks upon your neck
make you feel you have respect....
And that's enough for you it seems
While I sit wondering why your light grows dim
