?

When her mother went away

She thought she'd come back

She wrote her everyday

But she never wrote back

?

She would stay up with her brother

Without sleeping at all

She'd write to her father

Who she knew would never call

?

Once a month he'd visit

But never did he take her

She tried to make him listen

But he kept ignoring her

?

Not stopping to think of her life

Which was now at risk

He thought of his new wife

She was about to have a kid

?

The poor little girl

Who once had a home

Who used to dance and twirl

Was now all alone

?

The people who had lied

The people who gave up

All the nights she cried

She wouldn't give up

?
