So much heart so much love so much need Janis Joplin I cry to watch your heart bleed What a talent you brought to the world Time has seen your legend unfold How sad that your life was lost to the
abyss Of uncertainty and need, oh how you are missed What intellect, what talent and a future untold Such a beautiful woman and so in need of love It was like a crucifixion to see this talent
shoved By ignorant fools who couldn’t understand The cruelty when you were young and you so grand Anyone who had a heart could have saved you from your fate But when people found their heart it was
already too late She wove her daisy chains until winter spent the wildflowers with its will. She was too young to know that spring would come and they would bloom again, so she caught the stars at
midnight and wore them in her hair though no one saw them…Just her and the moon streaming in the window. Alone there with songs to sing and dreams to dream, she must have thought this is living —
and this is dying.

So much heart so much love so much need
Janis Joplin I cry to watch your heart bleed
What a talent you brought to the world
Time has seen your legend unfold
How sad that your life was lost to the abyss
Of uncertainty and need, oh how you are missed
What intellect, what talent and a future untold
Such a beautiful woman and so in need of love
It was like a crucifixion to see this talent shoved
By ignorant fools who couldn’t understand
The cruelty when you were young and you so grand
Anyone who had a heart could have saved you from your fate
But when people found their heart it was already too late
She wove her daisy chains
until winter spent the wildflowers
with its will. She was too young
to know that spring would come
and they would bloom again,
so she caught the stars
at midnight and wore them in her hair
though no one saw them…Just her
and the moon streaming in the window.
Alone there with songs to sing
and dreams to dream, she must have thought
this is living — and this is dying.
