lyrics

Verse 1: MotionPlus
She wasn't born with a silver spoon, but she made it work
million dollar smile, but two times the hurt
Double down on the love search, love hurt
had to search low to the ground in the mud first
She was so depressed, felt so alone
she had a man, had his heart, but her heart is cold
Hard to know if it was realer than the ones before
hard to see the path ahead when there's another door
Open and close, in and out, a lot of soul ties
a lot of passion and lies twisted like bowties
He would tell her you're the apple of my eye
she would tell him in a minute that an apple don't cry
And the tears are still streaming, dealing with these demons
dealing with abuse, boiling over still steaming
Holding on to hope, but never to its meaning
now she's giving up on this world and she's leaving

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few

Verse 2: Wonder Brown
He grew up on the unsuitable side of fitting the truest armor
”So what you guard your heart for?”
Some say it’s darkness
a godless plan for never paying the homage
so you could trust he’d never say it honest
The heart on his sleeve read “a tainted promise”
One-after-the-other victim in the grayest bondage
So you could say he painted in fifty shades
a beautiful deception hidden in uplifting ways
A bitter stain of a family curse
but it runs in his veins to put his vanity first
so in no time guess who’s sanity’s worst?
He’s got her looking everywhere for an answer reversed
and takes a deep breath, checks his reflection
then quickly turns his back to that scary direction
that same old story that never confesses
He buries her grin in the callous that cost her affections

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few

Verse 3: Elias
They found a body in the park about
1 am
And his mind went back to the first time he ever saw her
give him that cute grin.
They were 9 years old but the world grew cold
and their paths just grew apart.
But the thing that stuck with him most of all
was the grin that still had his heart.
She used to laugh and play
now she’s a runaway.
And Sally got a one track mind
Hitting the pipe most all of the time.
As she lay in the middle of the cold, dark park
He felt himself sink within.
But the thing that stuck with him most of all
was the grin that still had his heart

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few
