She's fallen from grace,
Her mind's all over the place,
How can she keep running this endless race?
Fantasize the happiness,
Put aside the loneliness;
Making the same mistakes again,
Don't know where she belongs...
Broken inside, with no place to go,
Dried out her eyes,
The feelings she hides,
Every moment; remind, relive, repeat,
Lost in the silence,
The land inside...
Dark and damp,
Awaiting a savior,
Someone, reach to her...
Is there anybody out there...?
No, not even the remains of the family,
She cries tonight,
Wondering what she can do;
Another fake smile,
She lives her worst nightmares...
She cries, she lies,
She's on memories that she once knew,
Then there's another empty bottle on the floor,
Every night, just one more night,
She tries so hard to go on..
Dried eyes, there's nothing more she can do...
The daughter that they hardly knew...
Once so innocent,
Now so far gone...
