This is the tale of a girl so young and wise. She didn't know herself before anybody got the chance. Under the moon, she used to sit and cry wondering about the answers she never resolved and the answers to... Why? Why she felt these feeling of pain that no other could explain. No therapist, no psychiatrist could tell her that she was wrong. Wrong about what I hear you ask. She was wrong about life.

Do you ever wish you could just... Start over.

When the wind howls, reminding you of that argument never resolved and the relationship broke over minor things.

The lies whistling through your teeth because you are hiding something that even your closest can't know.

I do...

 

This is the tale of a girl so young and wise she didn't even know herself before anybody else got the chance too. Under the moon, she used to sit and cry wondering about the answers she never resolved  and the answers to... Why? Why she felt these feeling of pain that no other could explain. No therapist, no psychiatrist could tell her that she was wrong. Wrong about what I hear you ask. She was wrong about life.

Life because she should have told when she was down to 
the ones around that she thought she could trust but were full of lust. She didn't tell because their 'secrets' were as bad as hers. If they thought they could hide depression by taking a tiny little pill of happiness to take you to Lapland where elves play in snow and everybody is laughing. The place she had never been.

She noticed that a man would come banging on the back door for her dad every night at around the same time when everybody was asleep. When they thought everybody was asleep.

Why weren't she allowed to enter the back room she said as they gulped and lied through their teeth straight to her innocent face.

Well, that angel face, the pretty little face is no longer so innocent. When you're are surrounded by people drowning in their own guilt you become one. A liar. A cheat. A scammer. As guilt as day.

However, soon enough, life got too much. They lost their house. They lost their money. But,they lost the most precious thing of all... A life.

The life of a girl so witty and bright that her eyes smile glimmered in the light. Eyes were stars like no night sky know to man as they shone in the reflection of the halo. The halo she saw in the mirror. Sat there in tears were her family. Dressed in black because earth lost an angel, but now heaven has one too.


So what if that girl could start over. What if she got another shot at life? What if you got another shot at life? As I haven't got another shot at life...
