A stubborn beauty killing time
that shouldnt have been hanging around here;
couldve made it in New York,
couldve made it in Hollywood,
but foolishness and innocence kept her back
and now like a blind mouse she waits.
Others stare and point,
she is ignorant to what they see,
at what she could have been.
They cant figure out her ambitions
they dont understand her convictions
shes been waiting for the longest time
will always be the last in line.
She wouldnt let them tarnish her,
never trade fame for respect.
Standing around like a shiny penny
beautiful, but most see,
tossed aside, no one picks it up
off the dirty ground, just lays there.
A prize for someone else with innocence in their eyes,
a prize is a shiny penny in the hand.
