More Than This Way Of Life - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

She stands out on the corner
damn there every night
Wonders every now and then
what wrong road she took in life
to end up here like this

Thinks about all she's known
believes that theres got to be more
more than this way of life

Morning breaks and she makes her way
back to Starbright Motel room number nine
Looks at the woman in the mirror
wonders where that little girl she once was
ever believe she would be here living this way

She knows she'll never marry a rich man
those dreams of being a movie star
thoughts like that faded long ago
And she wonders what if things had been different
what kind of memories would she hold

thinks about all she's known
believes that theres got to be more
more than this way of life...
