Sorry it was in as poetry but there was no song lyrics genre. This is about a girl who is friends with someone who completely changed who she was while her friends were away and the surprise the girl goes through.

She's so far gone, so far away,
her chubby face,
and her need to race
against the hands of time.
Little laughing Layla,
jumpin' up and say, uh,
well, I've never seen her
but maybe you could meet her,
but now- she's gone.
She was oh so sweet,
she could never stand the heat
because little laughing Layla's
gone ahead and changed her life.
Now the little girl's
gone and flipped my whole world
upside down and back again.
She bought a nice black dress
never got no rest.
'cuz little laughing Layla's
found a laughing sailor
and now she's gone and went
so far gone.
She went from finger painting
to military training
to late night entertaining
the man she never met.
Every other night
she's so far too inundated
with things she always hated
when they take her
so far gone.
I never got to say
she couldn't last a day
in the life
that she couldn't ever live.
so she sold her life to hades
and now she thinks that maybe
she could get away
to the life
that she didn't really live.
That next Christmas eve,
I got up to leave
and she stood right there in the doorway.
She said,
"Maybe I'm too dumb
to think that I could come
back into your arms
without a second chance."
So I told her that
I was just too happy
to know that she had never got sappy
that she would have a second chance,
'cause I'd always give her a second chance.
