California! Yeah! Okay, I'm
She was a beautiful girl
Veritably an angel walking on earth
With a heart golder than any star, sun or smile ever known
She was a pretty girl
The most beautiful you could ever see
It's so sad she never the danger
That her tender nature could bring
Laughing at school,
You could never know her troubles
What lay behind her eyes
When she wished upon a dying star
What did she want?
She told me one night
Rueful, shy and compassionate
Like the angel she was
"I want to be normal,
And yes, lose this beauty,
For you can never imagine
What I go through
When people try to catch me."
I understood clearly, but no one else believed
She was everyone's friend
She had a heart of gold
How could someone so beautiful,
Not even want to be?
She returns home, shy and sad
The others don't support what they believe foolish
Who would dare touch an angel
So tender and pure?
Taking off her coat,
Pulling her hair free
She's crying now
Because of all the bruises none she could feel
The people all hunt her
Yes, they hunt this shy little angel
For her beauty was like a magnet
And it was dragging her down
So everynight, she runs from the shadows
Because of the danger of her looks
Sobbing at home because no one would believe
That, though she was an angel
She was dangerous
"Sometimes stars can only be seen in darkness."
"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."
