The Way I Do



She was a California born and raised into a life she shoulda had
She was perfect in any light with an open heart and an open mind
In the beat of a heart it all would change
The fragile shell of a life would break

How do I get to you, so I can say to you I hear you're flyin, slowly dyin'
And if there's somethin' that you've been missin'
Just let somebody love you the way I do

Well you know that she really tried to change the ways
That ripped her deep inside
But every time the words would fall on the deafened ears
Of those who made her high
In the beat of a heart it all would change
Forever gone forever that way
