Just because I like Poison....
She stepped off the bus out
onto the city streets
Just a small town girl with her whole life packed in a suitcase by her feet.
But somehow the lights don't shine as bright as they did
On her mama's TV screen.
And the work seemed harder,
Days seemed longer
Than she ever thought they'd be
But you know you got to stick to your guns
When it all comes down
Cause sometimes you can't choose
It's like heads they win,
Tales you're gonna lose.
Win big-Mama's fallen angel
Lose big-Livin' out her lies
Wants it all-Mama's fallen angel
Lose it all-Rollin' the dice of her life.
Now she found herself in the fast lane livin' day to day
Turned her back on her best friends, yeah
And let her family slip away
Just like a lost soul
Caught up in the Hollywood scene
All the parties and limousines
Such a good actress hiding all her pain
Trading her memories for fortune and fame.
Just step away from the edge of a fall
Caught between heaven and hell
Where's the girl I knew a year ago?
Too much too soon
Or just a little too late
Cause when her ship came in
She wasn't there and it just wouldn't wait.
