lyrics

the pages of the book you were:
empty, cold, and white
they'd overlook your lack of verse
and that you were unkind
because the cover was divine

hit your peak at so young an age
in your teens and your prime
these will be your glory days
your only gifts enjoyed by all
save the awkward and the blind

time can be so cruel
late bloomers and dark halls
too beautiful, too soon, too bad
when the starlet hits the wall

take all you want, just say the word
pride before the fall
the well you dug, soon ran dry
and from your highest high school highs
you won’t graciously decline

time can be so cruel
late bloomers and dark halls
too beautiful, too soon, too bad
when the starlet hits the wall

you never saw the end in sight
before you know it’s all flown by
when the flower’s lost its bloom
and your looks have left the room
you best try to survive
on more than just your milkshake and a smile

time can be so cruel
late bloomers and dark halls
too beautiful, too soon, too bad
when the starlet hits the wall
