Amel Larrieux – Ten Minute High lyrics
She doesn't need it, but she won't try
Try to release it
'Cause she thinks she'll die
Dependant on it, for it she'll lie
It's only a ten minute high
That witnessed a father beat on a mother
Witnessed a system take away her only brother
No one ever said that they loved her
She used to close her eyes and make the pain subside
But now she's got her
Ten minute high
Just for a little while
She's queen of all the skies
If a hit is bad another one she can buy
Everybody tells her to stop
She would try
But nobody gave her a good reason why
Has taken it's toll
She looks to old for 17
The girl is much too bold
Her heart is cold when it used to be of gold
Her Future Has no chance to unfold
She's used her body to get her way
Is she ashamed of the games she's played?
But her best defense is to block out all the pain
But first she buys her...
Ten minute high
Just for a little while she's floating through the sky
What's she gonna do when she no longer can fly?
Is she gonna land on her feet or come down to die?
Or is she just gonna break down and cry
When she comes down it all becomes too clear
She knows that someday she should face her fears
But she's lost touch with reality and over the years
She's forgotten how it feels to be real
It's early morning
Quiet is the street
She lays in silence
The cold cement beneath her feet
She passed away and today's her 18th birthday
And all she's left me to say is....
She just had her last ten minute high
Did she contemplate that it would take away her life?
She probably knew, but she had no reason to fight
There is not a breath from her lips
Not even a sigh
If only she had known
Wrong from right
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye girl
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
