lyrics

She was just a girl, barely age thirteen
so much beauty so much heart and her eyes just gleamed
you’d never think that her life would go wrong simultaneously
but that was all due to changed that one crucial evening

on her way home, that brisk winters night
she left the school gates, alone with no one in sight
she tried call her mother, just a short time before
but her mother was too busy she didn’t answer the phone

So that young girl began to walk the streets (carelessly)
the same streets drug dealers and addicts, (wander endlessly)
as her heart began to race, she had to swallow her worry
(butterflies in her stomach), she headed home in a hurry
‘don’t ever walk alone in the night’ (that’s what her parents always forbid)
the one phase they always said (because you’re never alone on these streets kid)
you’re never alone on these streets kid

Just about 10 minutes from where she called her home
in the corner of her eye a group of men had been stalking her
she began to pace deserted streets through back alleys to get herself free
but they was always behind, it's just a matter of time

She was just a girl, barely age thirteen
so much beauty so much heart and her eyes just gleamed
you’d never think that her life would go wrong simultaneously
but that was all due to changed that one crucial evening
Evening

How could someone do this to you my dear
her face covered with dirt as she screamed with fear,
but these men didn’t care they let her voice ring out
“I just want out, please someone help”
once they’d had their way, they left her in the alley bloodied, brittle and fray
they took her life away that day

One week on her parents had noticed a change
loud music on repeat, she’d locked herself away
but what her parents did not know
she was about to hang the rope
she took her life away that day
they took her life away that day
