"Love is just a word until someone special comes along and gives it a meaning."

"I love walking in the rain, 'cause then no one can tell I'm crying."

"Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain."

Little blind girl in the corner at home

Someone cries "Fire!" and I'm left alone

On the night I could have shown bravery

In the corner all alone you left me

I could smell something strange and I yelled for you

You never came to help and I felt something new

I felt my skin scorching, my mouth filled with grit

I fell down on the floor in a fit

My clothes burned off and I screamed once more

Why did you never come to the door?

That night when you came to find the remains

I was in heaven as it started to rain

On the night I was killed in my home

During a fire, sad and alone

You could have saved me, I know

Why did you not come when I yelled so?

If the time comes again when you run from me

I'll remember that at least I had the courage to scream

I could have grown up to be somebody great

If it weren't for that unlucky twist of fate

If only you had run through to see
If anyone was alive, you could have saved me
