She stepped off the bus out into the city streets
Just a small town girl with her whole life
Packed in a suitcase by her feet

But somehow the lights didn't shine
As bright as they did on her mama's TV screen
And the work seemed harder and the days seemed longer
Than she ever thought they'd be

But you know you got to stick to your guns when it all comes down
'Cause sometimes you can't choose
It's like heads they win and tails you're gonna lose

Win big, mama's fallen angel
Lose big, livin' out her lies
Wants it all, mama's fallen angel
Lose it all rollin' the dice of her life

Now she found herself in the fast lane livin' day to day
Turned her back on her best friends, yeah
And let her family slip away

Just like a lost soul caught up in the Hollywood scene
All the parties and the limousines
Such a good actress hiding all of her pain
Trading her memories for fortune and fame

Just a step away from the edge of a fall
Caught between heaven and hell
Where's the girl I knew a year ago?

Win big, mama's fallen angel
Lose big, livin' out her lies
Wants it all, mama's fallen angel
Lose it all rollin' the dice of her life

Too much too soon or just a little too late
'Cause when her ship came in
She wasn't there and it just wouldn't wait

Win big, mama's fallen angel
Lose big, livin' out her lies
Wants it all, mama's fallen angel
Lose it all rollin' the dice of her life

Win big, mama's fallen angel
Lose big, livin' out her lies
Wants it all, mama's fallen angel
Lose it all rollin' the dice of her life
