About a girl who is unaware of her greatness but the world insists on tearing her down, because of their own twisted jealousy.

I hear she has the prettiest eyes,
Ones you could see from a thousand miles,
She struts herself about the town,
Not knowing how the ladies frown,
She looks toward the river east,
As the heart gives way and movements cease.

I hear she has the prettiest soul,
Not one could know how icy cold,
The winds of change brought tidings new,
Horses ran, chicks flew,
She looks around in a desperate quiver,
Her quick breath brings about a shiver,

I hear she has the prettiest mind,
She views the world as a child,
As life and death bring out the sinner,
Slowly but surely the plot becomes thinner,
She struts herself about the town,
Not knowing how the ladies frown

The ladies now have come to claim
The one they have desired to maim,
I hear she has the prettiest heart,
One through which they'll pierce a dart,
They walk alone about the town,
And no one knows how they frown

They've come now to collect their dues,
The Evil one has lost it's muse,
They pierced the heart of her so fair,
And thrown it in the dragon's lair,
At night he comes to claim his prize,
As all the world watches with silent eyes

I hear she had the prettiest eyes,
But none as ugly as her demise.
