Lyla (The Mayfield Four)

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 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
