Verse 1

She stepped off the bus out into the city streets

Just a small town girl with her whole life

Packed in a suitcase by her feet

But somehow the lights didn’t

Shine as bright as they did

On her mamas tv screen

And the work seemed harder

And the 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

Tails you’re gonna lose


Win big, mamas fallen angel

Lose big, livin out her lies

Wants it all, mamas fallen angel

Lose it all, rollin the dice of her life

Verse 2

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 the limousines

Such a good actress hiding all her pain

Trading her memories for fortune and fame


Just a 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

Solo, chorus out
