Eyes so green – deeper than the seas and with
Thoughts so far away; she was the dreamer of all dreams.
They told her she couldn’t succeed
Yet she tried and tried.
And eventually fell victim
To the abuse and lies.

Her smile held beauty that none could compare, but her
Confidence was shaken and she was struck with despair.
For the words that they had spoken
Got lost inside her head.
To the world she was alive,
But in her heart she was dead.

She found solace in a friend whose name we all know:
Crack cocaine became her lover and it became her foe.
Now she felt she had done
What they said she would do.
“Not only am I a failure,
But I am an addict too.”

She lost her name to the drugs and the smoke hid her face.
But sometimes in the dark you could hear them whispering,
Only when she was alone they would creep and crawl…
To the pipe, she knows, she gave it her all.

Entice her with your dance; the devil that you are.
Their words were nothing
But the needles sure left their scars.
Would you have any regrets if you knew it was your fault?
You put her through this hell:
The angel who was once at the top.

Eyes a little paler – lighter than the skies and her
Smile is so bleak. Her lips whisper goodbye.
They told her she couldn’t succeed,
Yet she tried and tried.
The dreamer of all dreams
Has left us tonight.
I have a dream ~
