Lyrics

Homeless Teenage Girl


Down a street lit busy way
a sweet little baby and it's mother lay
Baby just born and all alone
young mother dead she was unknown

and nobody noticed the bundle of joy
or even checked if it was a girl or a boy
just an innocent baby brought to this harsh world
cries for it's mother
a homeless teenage girl

Just like the last petal on the rose slips off slides down the stem
a vague whimper of a baby as it's life comes to an end
last wriggle of it's little toes on those tiny cold feet
last pump of it's tired heart
It struggles at the final beat

and nobody noticed the bundle of joy
or even checked if it was a girl or a boy
just an innocent baby brought to this harsh world
cries for it's mother
a homeless teenage girl

And isn't it crazy its existence so short
A couple of hours never learned to be adored
an innocent baby
brought to this harsh world
Cries for it's mother
a homeless teenage girl

a homeless teenage girl

That homeless teenage girl
nobody noticed she was crying
That homeless teenage girl
nobody noticed she was dying

With the baby by her side there they lay that busy way and there they died
mother and baby side by side
there they lay and there they died
Homeless teenage girl
