Painted Lady


Just like a moth ‘round the flame of a candle,

Close to a love that is too hot to handle,

The painted young lady flies out through the door,

Ignoring the warnings; she’s heard them before.

Her parents can’t stop her.  They pray for her sake,

She’ll not pay alone for mistakes she will make.

So goodbye to innocence, goodbye again;

Embrace in your arms, love’s delicious own pain

And when it is over, I hope she will see,

That though she’s alone, she has some dignity.
