Track 3 from album 'Negative Space', out April 13th 2018


I knew a poor young girl
She was but seventeen
So kind and pure of heart
She did not deserve what had come

She was so innocent
Her smile brought delight to the darkest days

But on that fateful night
She was robbed of her light
The angels took her back
When death had said his final word

But she was so innocent
A life of virtue and grace
We'll carry her spirit through our lives

One moment led to death
With no way to prevent
This fatal tragedy
That scarred the lives of those she knew

But her heart was innocent
It seems so far from just
But anger affords no peace of mind
