Say Goodbye To Annie.

1.

Say goodbye to Annie,
The pain is finally past,
She lives no more beyond the edge,
Her soul is free at last.
Free to rise above the streets
Where strangers go if they dare,
And people talk of days to come,
If God the time can spare;
You live your life on a highwire,
Play a deadly game,
When you're born to be,
A child of city streets,
Where all the junkies look the same.

2.

What chance had Annie,
When even before she was born,
She had a taste for alcohol,
Her innocence was gone.
And on and on she stumbled on,
Between the night and the day,
She never learned to live her life
In the usual kind of way.
See the lives around you,
Trickle down the drain,
When you're born to be,
A child of city streets,
Where all the junkies look the same.


3.
She kept her distance
She played with her charm
She hung around with a man who died
With a needle in his arm.
Down she spiraled
Down like a leaf from a tree
Calling out to the ones she loved
To keep her company.
You take your chances
And you take the strain
When you're born to be
A child of city streets
Where all the junkies look the same

4.

Say goodbye to Annie
The pain is finally past
She lives no more beyond the edge
Her soul is free at last.
