She tries so hard to forget the past
By drowning her sorrows in a champagne glass.
But all it does is numb the pain.
The hurt and memories still remain.
She thought she wanted diamonds and pearls.
And move about and see the world.
But money can't buy love, they say.
All the wrong choices she made that day.
She cast aside a love so true.
For someone with money she hardly knew.
But life wasn't as good as she thought it would be.
The fast circles she moved in found her sad and lonely.
Those castles in her mind
That she thought she would find
Have been reduced to a pile of rubble.
And all of her dreams have now crumbled.
So back to her past she wants to go.
To where she left off long ago.
But the one who cared and gave her his heart
Found someone new and made a new start.
