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
(Chorus) 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
