A smile for every passing car
She shrugs and whispers que sera
Her face is etched with memories
It's hard when you've been paid to please

Daylight comes she rests her head
She dreams of happy days instead

For pushers, bars and money fights
So she turns her head to the pillow
She's heard the jokes and jibes before
So she turns her head to the pillow
[Chorus]
Taking drugs was not for fun
But now she hurts when its all gone
She take a blade and breaks her skin
The white clouds in her head grow dim


Pale beauty in a crimson bed
She'll have no more tomorrows
