A YOUNG GIRL
She left her neighborhood, in which everyone was filthy rich She left her parents' home and strayed with a vagabond who made Vows of love she'd never heard, and she believed his every word She left no forwarding address, just took her youth and happiness As with the boy she vanished in, the secret sweetness of their sin A young girl A young girl of sixteen Child of springtime, still green Lying here by the road He told her love demanded space, so they rode from place to place Although she realized she'd sin, she threw cautions to the wind As she followed him around and he slowly dragged her down So overpowering was her love that it made him the captain of The young girl's heart and soul and mind In other words: love drove her blind A young girl A young girl of sixteen Child of springtime, still green Lying here by the road Too much emotions for a girl, she let her heart become her world But worlds that God has never wrought fall asunder we are taught Had she been wiser she'd have known, she could not feed him love alone She should have known the day would come when he would quit her just for crumbs He needed fresh new meat to carve, and left her heart and mind to starve A young girl A young girl of sixteen Child of springtime, still green Lying here by the road Dead
