Fallen Angel
by Poison



She stepped off the bus out into the city streets
Just a small town girl with her whole life
Packed in a suitcase by her feet
But somehow the lights didn't shine as
Bright as they did
On her mama's TV screen
And the work seemed harder
And the days seemed longer
Than she ever thought they'd be

But you know you got to stick to your guns
When it all comes down
Cause sometimes you can't choose
It's like heads they win
Tail you're gonna lose

[Chorus]
Win big, mama's fallen angel
Lose big, livin' out her lies
Wants it all, mama's fallen angel
Lose it all, rollin' the dice of her life

Now she found herself in the fast lane
Livin' day to day
Turned her back on her best friends, yeah
And watched her family slip away
Just like a lost soul
Caught up in the Hollywood scene
All the parties and limousines

Such a good actress
Hiding all her pain
Trading in memories for fortune and fame
Just a step away from the edge of the fall
Caught between Heaven and Hell
Where's the girl I knew a year ago

[Chorus]

Too much too soon
Or just a little too late
'Cause when her ship came in
She wasn't there and it just wouldn't wait

[Chorus]
