BROKEN ANGEL

Inspired by the tragic, brilliant Ladies of song such as Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Amy Winehouse.

BROKEN ANGEL

 

What happened to that Girl I once knew

so full of love you shone like the Sun.

You grasped life and wouldn’t let go,

I didn’t see what had already begun.

 

Always your smile that was Legend,

but the Demons awoke in your Mind

haunting your thoughts Day & Night,

breaking the Girl who once shined.

 

And I can’t stop though I know I must,

I just can’t take seeing you on the Floor

watching you turn your life into dust

my broken Angel behind the Door.

 

Your Voice never out of season,

an Angel with no use for Wings

put on this earth for one reason,

to bring pleasure when she sings.

 

You say a bottle grants you Peace,

and helps you to perform your Art,

that your Story only has one End,

that you don’t care breaks my Heart

 

And I can’t stop though I know I must,

I just can’t take seeing you on the Floor

watching you turn your life into dust

my broken Angel behind the Door.
