The Sunset Behind Her

She had it all
The sun shining on her
The stars above her
She had it all
The world at her feet
The Queen of soul

But then they came
They brought her away
From stardom
With meth and alcohol

They brought her from the sun
Onto this narrow path
Beside the sea of tears
It rained everyday
Of her tears

She tried her best to walk back
Towards the sun
But she couldn’t see it clearly

Every inch she took, she thought
It was towards the sun
Not it’s mirage

She had it all.
Glitz and Glamour
Fame and Money
But they took that all away and set her
On this path

The further she went the more they gave to her
She was happy then sad then upset
She was so far nobody saw her, her name forgotten

She walked until she could no more

She had it all.
Glitz and Glamour
Fame and Money
But they took that all away and set her
On this path
Until she could walk no more

They left her there all alone
Sobbing

She had it all.
Glitz and Glamour
Fame and Money
But they took that all away and set her
On this path
Until she could walk no more

She was a lost princess lured by so-called friends
Left alone on a dead end

The mirage was none other than a mirror
She saw herself
Her tears
Her tattered clothes
But she also saw the sun

She had it all.
Glitz and Glamour
Fame and Money
But they took that all away and set her
On this path
Until she could walk no more

But in that sun she was no more
There sung a new princess
Happy and naive as she had been
And then she saw the sunset
Her eyes closing
Her last words
The dark of the night
The end of her life
