Beauty Queen

Just look at that One
How she swings those sexy hips
Flips her luscious hair
Flashes that beauty queen smile
She barely notices your scorn
It’s nothing to her
Nothing compared to the beatings
When she failed to win every time
Wasn't the prettiest of all
She was just a little girl

Just listen to that One
How she tells her tall tales
Sucks up to the boss
Flirts with all the boys
She barely notices your sneers
It’s nothing to her
Nothing compared to the loneliness
A desperation to be seen
Childhood falling on deaf ears
Just an object used 'til broken

Just being around that One
Makes you wish she’d grow up
Stop pretending to be perfect
Sit down and shut up
She barely notices your malice
It’s nothing to her
Nothing compared to the fear
A drunk boyfriend in the bars
Those other women in his wallet
Missing her period these last three months

So very true. All that we are outside is to hide what's really going on inside.

Ron - Thanks

Zoooom - You're exactly right. Every time I see her, I want to wrap her up in my arms and whisper in her ear that she's not alone.

NNM - As long as we make sure a Hot Chik is the Director for the video.

Sit down and shut up"
