Lyla in bloom
Her innocence and youth stripped away
Eighteen years old
But she's lived the life of sixty-eight
The heartache of a mother gone
And father she's never known
So she dreams of a better place
Scared and alone
Turning tricks and getting stoned to survive
Vegas sex queen
Living in a world that's so obscene in a dead end life
At the end of every tragic day she says this to herself
If I can hold on I know

When I find my wings
I'll fly away
Over the mountains
Over the pain
And I won't look back
Cause I've gotta get away from here
I've gotta get away from here
