She hides her needs behind a smile,
Bright eyes, full of life, all the while,
Others take her love in their hand,
But not enough returns to her land.
A lover, a romantic, an angel with broken wings,
She craves to hear the song that she sings,
Much confusion in her heart,
It’s been broken from the start.
She deserves to be free,
Chains from her past anchored at sea,
Cheating her of her heart’s desire,
Putting flames out instead of lighting her fire.
