Liner Notes: 

I saw a photo that I had to write about.


No More Than 16

No more than 16
A runaway
Now on a street corner
Making her pay
Trying to act older
Makeup and dress
How she got here
Is anyone's guess

Was she an orphan
With no family
Why is she here
Clothed so scantily
Does she want drugs
To forget her pain
Is she drinking whiskey
But wanting champagne

What is her story
Does anyone care
Does anybody question
Why she's standing there
Is all of her hope gone
As well as her dreams
Is her young life
Even worse than it seems

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
